It's lexically legal, of course. There's nothing in the protocol  
which prohibits numeric labels. So you can expect your authority  
server not to blink when loading the zone containing such  
delegations; the non-functionality of the whole arrangement stems  
from the behaviour of recursive resolvers which will fail to follow  
the delegation as the misinformed registrant intended.
