Literally, you are correct.  In George MacDonalds "The Lost Princess",
there is a single sentence in the first paragraph that goes on for 
the rest of the page.  That would pass literal muster also.
If it will help to say "lines" instead of "sentences", I'll change
the informal Schema.

Then, given that "<64chars>.bar" is a valid <domain-spec>, what's the 
point in having the indirection via some macro, if what we want to test 
is just the handling of malformed (but syntax-valid) domain names?

Because the behaviour may be different?  It could easily be a different
code path in an implementation.  You are very good with improving the
explanations, but you really don't seem to get the value of testing
for all the stupid things we can think of.  It is a big help to someone
creating an implementation.
