During the DNS "pharming" scare, when the Megapowerpills spammer used
a similar setup using name servers authoritative for .com serving a
wildcard A record, and a few sites only got to the spammer's web page
until the cache was purge, a lot of people cared.  But even then,
there seemed to be little interest among TLD operators to go after
this sort of namespace violation.
