One of the reasons I thought I ought to try to do something here is
that something along these lines might just possibly get included in
new agreements with gTLDs if we have something useful.  I haven't
raised this with ICANN yet, because I don't even know whether the
proposal could possibly be useful.  But if it seems even a little
likely to work, then I don't think it'd be hard to get TLD operators
to take this up.  Adding an RR to a zone file is way easier for TLD
operators than to co-ordinate with an outside body.

Best,

A
