If the consensus is that better interoperability can be had
by banning bare AAAA records that's perfectly fine with me.
FWIW, I'd like that...
Clarity can be established and interoperability _improved_
by limiting discovery to just A and MX records. Perhaps a
note might be included that at some point in the future MX
records may become required.
Again, I have no problem with this approach if that's what
the consensus is.
...and that, too.
so what is supposed to happen when I remove all
"A" RR's from my zones?
The same thing that happens today with zones that don't
have A records. You use MX records to refer to machines
that have address (A and/or AAAA) records.
er... what about zones w/ A & AAAA rr's and no MX's?
when I pull the A rr's, you are telling me that SMTP
stops working? That is so broken.
