Do not depend upon applications not to resolve addresses for root

names, even when a convention is explicit. Depending upon root

considered a design mistake isn't it?

Subject line changed to reflect reality.

let's mark it as such.

The initial thread started on the issue of domain tasting, and
perhaps it has morphed here.
