1.  Introduction

   This document defines an RR type to implement an architecture similar
   to the Digital Object Architecture [ITU-X.1255] within the DNS.  Each
   DOA RR contains an object type that might be opaque and private to
   the producer and the consumer of the data and either the data (if
   small enough to fit in the RR) or a pointer on how to retrieve the
   actual data.

2.  Terminology

   The key words "MUST", "MUST NOT", "REQUIRED", "SHALL", "SHALL NOT",
   "SHOULD", "SHOULD NOT", "RECOMMENDED", "NOT RECOMMENDED", "MAY", and
   "OPTIONAL" in this document are to be interpreted as described in BCP
   14 [RFC2119] [RFC8174] when, and only when, they appear in all
   capitals, as shown here.

3.  The DOA Resource Record

3.1.  Description

   The Type value for the DOA RR is TBD.  The DOA RR is class
   independent.  No special processing is required within DNS servers or
   libraries.
