I'm saying that an attackers use of "i-look-like-domain.com" does not
diminish or defeat the level of protection which ADSP provides to
"domain.com". In fact, ADSP will push _all_ attackers to move to
"i-look-like-domain.com." I view this as a good thing, others don't and
I'm struggling to understand why.
