The good news is that it resulted in "Configuration Succeded". The bad
news is, start.rosasharn.com results in a "Server not found" page. I don't
think its recognizing it as a CNAME because I did a NSLOOKUP for CNAMEs of
rosasharn.com, and none were found.

The reason I thought it was odd is because I tested it against other
unknown/wrong DNSs on my domain, like askljfsl.rosasharn.com to see if all
wrong addresses resulted in hcoop.net, but they do not. Wrong addresses
give Page Not Found, while the one I used previously then eliminated
(start.rosasharn.com) still goes to hcoop.net.
