I have the problem in the other direction. The response of glue as
legitimate answers is not accepted by my resolver (DNSSEC validation on).
The reason to ask here is a report from a friend who's resolver assumed the
answer to complete and therefore was unable to resolve his own domain.

So I have to choose to make the new implementation bugward compatible or not.
