I'm having trouble finding this assumption in RFC 1034.

Moreover, on page 15 I find the following example.


This RR appears again in the example starting on page 36, where the
ARPA TLD is shown in the root zone, and the EDU TLD has its own zone.

These illustrations appear inconsistent with the suggested assumption.
