That's exactly what I am saying. And that's the behaviour I am
expecting. The "." in the host name component defines a relationship
of the type : A.B.C means A belongs to domain B which in turn belongs
to TLD C; and a RTL directionality (rightmost C is at the top level of
the hierarchy) thus ab.EDC.HGF is the right visual representation.
