Evan: you seem to be hoping that this API will solve a problem that the DNSEXT WG has not been willing to deal with for many years. If so, your hope is misplaced. If that problem can be addressed *in a way that is easy and clear to application developers*, I'm happy to do so, and am still looking at the question. However, if the method of doing that is complicated in the current DNS environment, it will be relegated to the context part of this API and thus will continue to go pretty much unused.
