I'm not talking about eliminating spelling differences via canonicalization
or normalization. I'm talking about dealing with spelling difference
by having multiple RRs registered in a zone, one for each spelling,
or some other technique to create the same effect without actually
creating a separate entry for each spelling in the zone file.

no I'm not. unless you're saying that accent marks need to be preserved
through normalization (I think you did say that much) and any variations
handled on the server end (I think you did not say that).

you're the one who is confused. you're not bothering to read what I write.
