Not of domain names, only the representation of domain names as sent
on-the-wire. There is a difference, and if the encoding choosen here
is non-ambiguous we won't have to deal with sorting since the
"canoncial order" described in rfc2535 will work.
Let's just place a requirement that the encoding chosen should be
non-ambiguous and we don't have to deal with the sorting jack-in-a-box
(unless something else require real sorting, of course).
