	I don't quite agree.  I monitor over 60 domains, strewn 
over about 2 dozen machines.  Some of the names of the domains are long
(15 characters) and some of the machines names are long (hostname is
8).  This is pretty long if you were to do that. I think I'd rather
come up with my own little codes.

	Without AUTH, why still wouldn't you want to know what name of
the machine that isn't able to come up with the answer.  The root name
servers aren't authoritive, but I'd still like to know which one THIS
time claims my domain doesn't exist.
