I understand. It is a difficult question to answer. And if you fix the
resolver, do you go and fix the cacheing nameserver
Do you accept it without warn, warn and accept, or reject?
My inclination is to have a new "strict" resolver option, default to off
and allow '_' in hostnames... If CDNs are putting _'s in hostnames there
is not much we can do; either we pretend to be the internet fighters for
chastity, or accept that the world is changing adjust course and move on.
