Yes, because adding A records to your own zone is so terribly difficult.


The fact is that dict.org already has an A record, but they have
misconfigured it:

# host dict.org
dict.org                A
# host www.dict.org
www.dict.org            CNAME   miranda.org
miranda.org             A

That's a bad use of a CNAME too.
