@kasperd the point of my answer is to demonstrate that no such positive records exist. As for your second point, doing so would (eventually) cause all such queries to timeout, rather than have them immediately receive the (correct) negative response.

@HåkanLindqvist yes, a redirect to the canonical site might be better, but why downvote for otherwise still useful supplemental information.

Average bandwidth is still measured in (M)bps - the resolution needs to be specified separately.
