<You are NOT allowed to own a domain and not have a valid DNS server
for it. The server might be unavailable, it might be outdated but it
MUSt exists in the record for a domain being granted to you.>

domain existence is NOT a good idea (even if many people do it).>

Rejecting based on this info has always been a good practice in the
fight against spam.
