Add automatic DNS CNAME flattening for root domain

Current situation:
If I enter my root domain into the "hostname" field I'm only allowed to create entries such as A, AAAAA, MX etc. but not CNAME.

Wanted situation:
I can create a CNAME entry with my root domain and this will be flattened automatically, like Cloudflare does (https://support.cloudflare.com/hc/en-us/articles/200169056-CNAME-Flattening-RFC-compliant-support-for-CNAME-at-the-root)

    Exactly what I am looking for, given Github Pages now has SSL for custom domain, this would allow us to use them on the root domain, and use DO for DNS and anything dynamic (app.mydomain.com).
