  1. DNS can use UDP.
  2. There is no need to do interplanetary name lookup each time; the local
resolver can have all desired hosts preconfigured.
  3. Even if this fails, you can have numeric addresses in an URI authority,
so it does not preclude using URI if only numeric addresses are feasible.
(BTW, domain names are for people; appliances do not need them at all unless
their host has an unstable IP number.)
IMHO,
Chris

But URIs in space? URIs are predicated on an authoritative DNS.
In deep space, DNS as it stands is likely not to be useful - lookups
take too long, contacts are scheduled and planned, late binding,
rather than early binding, is needed. And TCP's assumptions
and timers aren't a good fit with the environment. But that doesn't
rule out IP or other protocols in the suite.
