> 
>    Many communication protocols operated over the modern Internet use
>    host names.  These often resolve to multiple IP addresses, each of
>    which may have different performance and connectivity
>    characteristics.  Since specific addresses or address families (IPv4
>    or IPv6) may be blocked, broken, or sub-optimal on a network, clients
>    that attempt multiple connections in parallel have a higher chance of
>    establishing a connection sooner.  This document specifies
>    requirements for algorithms that reduce this user-visible delay and
>    provides an example algorithm.
