Maybe this is not the right list for this mail, but i couldn't find
the right/better list...

A few days ago I found the no-www website [1]. They say that the www
subdomain is deprecated. Their argument is that you also don't send
e-mails to name@mail.example.com, but just to name@example.com. I feel
like they have a point in this.
They also classify websites in 3 classes:

~    * Class A is a domainname where www.example.com and example.com
~      refer to the same documents.
~    * Class B is a domain where all the requests to www.example.com
~      are redirected to example.com (using the .htaccess file)
~    * In a Class C domainname www.example.com and example.com refer to
~      two different sites.

Does the W3C have any recommandations about this?

A time ago I was thinking about the fact that I now sometimes use
www.budts.be and sometimes just budts.be, which isnt very efficient.
Since i found the no-www website I am considering of making my
domainname a class B domain...

Kind regards,
Thanks in advance,
