I thought they had already done this (and not told us)...

Let's put it this way, there's an external customer of ours that used ( and (
as well as somebody elses DNS, anyway that somebody elses DNS server was
down for a day (due to an upstream network outage) and basically this
customer ground to a halt because they couldn't resolve domain names.
