ICANN Seems To Not Understand That HTTP != SMTP

If you have a read this news item, ICANN claims that domain redirection - which is used only for http traffic (ie, web sites) - ICANN offers a FUD reason why this is bad: "For example, users sending e-mail to a domain that does not exist should get an immediate error message."  Aahhh, since when does a http redirection affect smtp traffic?

The ICANN is trying harder and harder to make sure people know that they are still a necessary part of the Internet these days, and it is comments like this that show how little they actually understand of how the Internet works.
