the ones I've seen have been woefully inadequate.   many of my domains 
stretch across multiple IP providers, not all of whom I have RDNS on 

re: cname's, I'm of the opinion that you shouldn't use CNAME within your 
own domain(s), and only use them if you can't possibly use anything 
else...  About the ONLY place I use them is things like aiming a host at 
something like google where you HAVE to use a CNAME.
