Yes but I think the rfc1537 refers, and the recommendation always was "localhost." hostname, which refers to name "localhost", not "localhost.domain". Then I guess, this was already wrong in the O'Reilly "DNS and BIND" book (have to check that), which I remember using as a guideline to set up our first domains/zones. And from that, the setting was copied later on to all new domains too.

Yes, it used to be recommended -
But not any more, because -
I also only found out about this recently(ish) - https://www.dns.cam.ac.uk/news/2017-09-01-localhost.html
f.anthony.n.finch <dot at dotat.at> http://dotat.at/ Tyne, Dogger: Northwest 5 or 6, backing southwest 6 to gale 8, then becoming cyclonic 5 to 7 later. Slight or moderate, becoming rough for a time. Rain or thundery showers. Good, occasionally poor.
