Please don't implement this.

The DNS is an inherently hierarchical system, and this proposal destroys that.  
It will introduce ambiguities that will make troubleshooting difficult.  Many 
enterprise IT groups depend on the current implementation of the DNS as a 
hierarchy to help their users reliably locate resources via search lists, 
appending strings to incomplete names, and similar techniques.  This only works 
if the DNS maintains its current structure.
