There's the particularly special case of WKS which has weird collision
logic - RFC 2136 section 3.4.2.2. It's extra weird that this was specified
in 1997 when WKS was deprecated in 1989 - RFC 1101 and RFC 1123.

I fear that this will make it hard to delete WKS code because that may
introduce interop bugs if a new server bindly allows colliding WKS records
that an old server objects to.
