So your issue is with wanting to ensure that different implementations use the
result of the test in the same way.
Assuming I now do understand your point, I think my original question is fully
I still find myself not understanding how any of this makes a difference to
the real-world utility of ADSP.
For example, let's say that a receiver chooses either not to do the NXDomain
test or chooses to process the result differently than the document specificies.
Exactly what terrible outcome does this produce?
