Yeah.  But the problem is (in my experience) that people sometimes want
clients to get authoritative answers for cosmetic reasons, not realizing
some of their clients have crippled resolvers, and than they get into
trouble.  It is best to let the name server do the resolving (and deal
with the problems on that level).
