this is a topic that DSA is already thinking about for a long time.

while the idea is great, the solution to it is rather complex. You will
need to know all existing and non-existing addresses for all debian.org
subdomains on those frontends. While this might work for services with
mostly static addresses, this will not work easily for services with
changing addresses (like bugs.d.o, packages.d.o, ...).
