Yeah, that seems more sensible, avoids breaking a ton of URLs, and has
less potential for spoofing (given appropriate safeguards).

I don't buy the argument that then we should also alias 1 and l and o

could maybe make it better still, but that seems separate and given
what's deployed and relied upon unlikely.
