CNAME and DNAME mean different things.  CNAME defines an alias for a
particular name (the alias is a leaf in the tree).  DNAME defines an
alias for a domain suffix (the alias effectively creates a mirror of a
whole subtree).  Paul's draft describes three different methods to get
www.foo.example.com and www.bar.example.com to refer to the same server:

okay, got it. It would be great if this could be made clearer in the document, by numbering the proposals, and mentioning the used features in the intro text (which is currently not done for CNAME).
