Technical Summary

This is an update to the wildcard definition of RFC 1034. The
interaction with wildcards and CNAME is changed, an error
condition removed, and the words defining some concepts central
to wildcards are changed. The overall goal is not to change
wildcards, but to refine the definition of RFC 1034.
