Perhaps someone should begin thinking about this & working
with the people who work on the DNS standards. I'm not
sure WKS is used for much of anything & whether every implementation
can deal with it -- it never caut on. Maybe a new kind of
record is needed, analogous to MX records, an IX record for
information exchangers?
