"The result of an MX lookup MUST NOT be a CNAME."
Can this *please* be slightly reworded? "The RR value of an MX lookup..." perhaps?

It is the compound "MX lookup" that generates ambiguity, as it is used to indicate the initial lookup of the domain name. Actually, that's what the whole first paragraph in 5.1 is talking about. If it were considered a minor change, I'd propose moving that sentence to the end of the next paragraph, where its rationale can be grasped more easily.
