I can sympathize with Sprint's delay since my network has the same
problem. On OSen which included this newer version of BIND for which I
had source, I had to kinda "break" it to get name resolution until
such time as people decide on a new naming schema.

I cannot sympathize with Sprint's delay. It has all along been documented
what the valid characters were. Just get all the managers that want to have
a say in what the new scheme will be, and lock them into a hotel room with
food service, allowing them to leave only once they have have a concensus or
relinquish their say in the matter.

They can just substitute / for - in the mean time.

And then, Sprint isn't the only culprit. Take a look at CRL.
