Short readable examples are desirable.

The old examples, such as "/pda" are of a form that is likely to be deprecated moving forward.

I think it is important that the MIX spec uses examples aligned to current recommendations, even if there is some impact on readability.

I've modified the note to make clear that when the recommendation is finalized, that MIX will be updated to align, and that shorter examples will be used if this is in lie with the recommentations.

My sense is that the following is larger than it needs to be:

However,  I will let those working in BIND2 decide what is sensible
