Just flagging the fact that this is a non trivial scope creep.

Anything that was using the DNS update API on the client side these
days should probably be PCP aware or else it is going to fail in
NAT-ed situations.

I would bundle the PCP interface and the DNS interface and give the
PCP server the job of managing the DNS...

This mailing list is for the design of a specific DNS API. There are plenty of features in this API which have things that are difficult to code to, but they are there for the benefit of application developers who are willing to do the work.
