I'm on your side here, but in all honesty, it's arbitrary. More people
on the bug report were for www than not, and Dan got to it first.
Why I hate "www":
* world wide web... who says that anymore?
* For every other service, people are totally fine with using the
domain name and letting it decide what to do: ssh archlinux.org NOT
ssh ssh.archlinux.org; mailto aaron at archlinux.org NOT mailto
aaron at email.archlinux.org; ping archlinux.org NOT ping
icmp.archlinux.org; I can go on and on and on.
The only benefit I've heard here is relating to using a CNAME for the
website DNS, allowing us to redirect web traffic easier, for downtime
and the like, but that seems minor, and we can always change an A
record too. /me shrugs
