I fully disagree that the addition of duplicate rules that will never be
reached is part of the design.  As a waste of memory allocation, it is
inefficient and therefore incorrect.  The use of a hostname in place of an IP
address literal should not have any effect in the rule(s) generated.  It
doesn't matter that there are three addresses. After applying the mask, there
is only one unique address, and therefore, there should be only one rule.

If IPtables behaved this way "since the beginning of time," then explain to me
why ip6tables' behavior originally differed.  Your argument lacks candor.
