I wasn't there, but that's what the meeting notes seem to say, and that's
what the people who were there all seem to agree on.  Not that it matters;
the type is defined and at least one authority server implementation will
synthesize protocol-compliant CNAME RRs in the presence of DNAMEs, and so
the approach documented at will universally work OK.
