CNAME at the root of the domain

The DNS administration interface doesn’t allow it to be added to the root of the domain because the CNAME (canonical name) is not only a redirection of the record A, but also the full domain name. If a CNAME record could be created for the domain, it would also move the NS and SOA records elsewhere, which would be equivalent to making the domain unusable.
