This is a good idea, even if only an internet draft, as it preserves the 
semantics of existing implementations while extending the functionality 
of the spec.

QSD has been bubbling up on the Catacomb todo list for months now, 
hopefully we'll be able implement it before the new year. I would 
strongly favor keeping all discovery mechanisms within the scope of QSD 
as it will minimize the number of requests necessary to determine the 
capabilities/features that a given server implements.
