You make quite a lot of noise it this mail, but I fail to find any real 
arguments. (Unless you consider saying "this should be so" or "this is 
wrong" an argument.)

You give nice explanations how things work, but fail to say anywhere why 
having localhost.localdomain first is so wrong.
What breaks? What standards (with reference please) are not honored?
What alternative solutions do you propose for the problems that led up to 
it being included?
