neither TXT nor HINFO contain domain names in RDATA, so it's a bug in both
cases, although one that doesn't hurt. One could also argue that the list
lacks NSAP-PTR, but then that's as obsolete as MD ans MF. Sam Weiler is
collecting a list of errata to the DNSSEC spec, so he'll probably be able
to deal with the double HINFO (and MD/MF).
