I know it's a corner case but just because example.com resolves doesn't mean
that it's not also defined somewhere else.

TPG have never really been up front about the trans-proxy but it's existence
has been common knowledge in some circles (i.e. whingepool) for a long time.

	capital punishment for stupidity, but why don't we just take the safety
	labels off of everything and let the problem solve itself?
