This is fair comment. The trouble is how to improve things. There isn't a DNS police to enforce BCPs or whatever and throw persistent offenders in jail. Having a hall of shame for the people with the most badly broken setups is hardly likely to be productive either. And as Peter pointed out, the process for getting TLD delegations amended can be painful and slow, even when the TLD wants to make a change. Friendly persuasion and quiet words of advice from a Jon Postel would probably be effective. But who is there that has that stature and broad acceptance today?
