Based on the discussion, is there any reason to keep the text below?  

If the consensus is "no", should it just be dropped completely, or should it be replaced with something stating (rough text):

"The DNAME RR does not cause any additional section processing.  This is a change from RFC 2762."

Because this is another change from the original DNAME spec.
