Sorry? We solve implementation hardship by standards action now?

   "Some modern Authoritative servers, such as those used by CDN's, do
   not have DNS zones.  For those servers answering ANY query truthfully
   is hard work.  Thus ignoring ANY queries simplifies the
   implementation."

Is this really all there is to the story? Seriously? 

I have lots of respect for Olafur, but this does seem to turn a local
challenge into a global standards action..
