A well known fact, which leads right into your next comment...

24 hours + outage whilst stale dns disappears will never do in
internet retail.
And yet, with 90% of the net implementing the "will never do" scenario,
we manage to get a lot of internet retail done anyhow. I'm obviously going
to need a *lot* more caffeine to sort through that conundrum....
We do because we don't wait for DNS to time out in broken browsers, we have actual multi-homing with real networks.
