Re: benefits to typical users...

Sorry, but I don't think the users benefit from breaking the RFC's and other excellent "rules" that define how the Internet works. We're talking pretty fundamental stuff like the OSI model and the protocol-neutral basis of the Domain Name System. We're breaking legitimate applications, creating caching problems, and enormous scope and temptation for abuse. I think that's a terrible tradeoff especially when it can all be avoided so easily.

This.

Users didn't benefit from the extend and destroy wars by IE and Netscape in the 90s.

a failed DNS lookup should produce an error code, not a return code of 0 and a http page of text. Any automated process that relies on compliant behavior will fail.
