It is not an official definition (see RFC 2606 for that one, which 
reserves .localhost as a TLD but not localdomain).

Maybe Kai is suggesting is that localhost.localdomain should not be 
selected when there is another match?

(Applications such as Gnus should probably do additional sanity checks 
since they may be required by various mail/news standards, but emacs 
shouldn't have to. I believe Gnus does this.)
