I've been biting my tongue, but ok I give up. Not your fault specifically

What toxic landscape gives rise to this unwanted denizen? If something
demands a CNAME at the apex, it's hardly a zone at all: how can we do NS

Just CNAME it. There I said it: CNAME it in the parent zone, because it's
not a zone at all.

But that will never happen because rules exist against that sort of thing.
