Re: Minor is. It's not a pardigm change

It isn't clear how many implementations do more then translating a hostname into an address record and using it. It is not clear that intranet or behind-firewall clients use MX records.

Then they're not following the RFCs, which is perfectly fine so long as you don't expect them to interoperate directly with the outside world.

That won't change.  So could you clarify what you've been objecting to?
