   What is the reason for wanting a new port for DNS?   Isn't  it
enough  to  create  new  top level domains?  Running DNS on a new
port would mean installing DNS everywhere to run on this new port
(ie  deploying  a second DNS). It you use an new namespace within
existing DNS (ie a new top level domain) can't  you  achieve  the
same effect?
