Of course ICANN has better things it could do. However most of those  
"better things" are (close to) impossible for ICANN to resolve. IMO it  
would be better for ICANN to spend time pontificating about address  
records for TLDs than work on things which could be unwelcome. YMMV.

It would be nice if the IAB or IETF could issue some sort of "RRs in  
single-label domain names considered harmful" document. But I'm got  
going to hold my breath.
