[Bug 12965] Problem: I want to perform DNS queries from a HTML5 app, but the networking functions available are too restrictive to build a stub resolver. Why: DNS is not just for machines - zones may contain extremely useful and rich information for humans too, e.g.

Without commenting on whether the suggestion here is a good one or not, it's
not in scope for the Web Sockets API, which is just about exposing the Web
Sockets protocol. If you want a DNS API at the W3C, you should propose it to
the working group.

If you want the WHATWG to work on such an API, please see this FAQ entry:
http://wiki.whatwg.org/wiki/FAQ#Is_there_a_process_for_adding_new_features_to_a_specification.3F
(The same steps would also help on the W3C side, in practice.)
