In fairness, it should be noted that at time when I've adminned hosting
business, I always put in A records for both the bare domain and www, and
config the web server to match; simple because The People (tm) at large
somewhere along the line latched onto the idea that a domain is nothing
but a name for a webpage (well, sometimes it's a name for email too).

But on my personal stuff, I still take the opportunity to use a
hierarchical namespace like it's a hierarchical namespace.
