I saw the key word and I agree with you.  Someone out there thought 
that it was a good idea or else we wouldn't be discussing about 
this.  Your technical arguments are sound but they are unfortunately 
being overridden by other considerations.

There are currently 22 TLDs with MX records, 16 TLDs with address 
records and 11 TLDs with wildcards.

   "The notion that different domains would be run in different ways --albeit
    within the broad contexts of "public service on behalf of the
    Internet community" and "trustee... for the global Internet
    community"-- was considered a design feature and a safeguard against
    a variety of potential abuses.  Obviously the world has changed in
    many ways" (since then) ...
