    Since the RFCs *demand* that an address mentioned in mail has an MX
    record, and the fallback to A records was not, until recently, described,
    there probably are some mailers that cannot deliver mail to that address.
    Which, in my book, counts as "not perfectly fine", even though I admit
    those mailers are probably in a minority as, sadly, this particular
    disease is pretty widespread.

    Still. I personally count it as a bug just the same as using an implicit
    extern to call a function.
