	Specifying that a name including one or more underscores should own
	an address record (of whichever flavour) will offend those (among
	whom, myself) who hold the (arguably religious) position that the
	underscore is not allowed in a host name.

	Religious discussion aside, you may wish to consider the impact of
	specifying behaviour which requires specific non-default configuration
	of existing nameservers.

	I like Joe's advice to use the SRV record.
