That would be a namedroppers issue.
I can understand why this suggestion ought to be considered.
To tell the truth, I think that CNAMEs are "followed" at all in the
4.3.2 algorithm is a flaw in the protocol, although this does cut
down round trips for in-zone or in-server CNAMEs. We need to
re-balance the tradeoff of what's good for the protocol design versus
what's good for operations.
