You are absolutely correct, the microsoft.com records are invalid -- hard 
to believe but true.  And I think it is important that implementations and 
their users NOT begin to weaken their lookup limits, because otherwise 
more and more domains will begin to ignore the lookup limits, in turn 
again causing other implementations to have to raise, or entirely get rid 
of, their limits.

The limits are a necessary evil that serve the purpose of mitigating the 
risks of DoS attacks.
