Indeed :-)

The problem with saying it must only be the authority's job is that in
situations like ours (which being a university is I guess not that
different from Thijs's) the user population do not use very many different
resolvers, so the authorities do not get the opportunity to serve up lots
of different RR set orderings, unless you go for ridiculously short TTLs.

Fair Isle, Faeroes, South-east Iceland: Westerly or southwesterly 6 to gale 8,
occasionally severe gale 9 in Faeroes and Southeast Iceland. High or very
high, occasionally phenomenal. Squally wintry showers. Moderate occasionally
very poor.
