I've read the document, and I like it.
A pleasant break from other IETF business!

His review:

 Subject to the question below, this document appears to be ready for
 publication as an Informational RFC.  

 Is this, January 2005 publication, really a capture of the Fall 2003
 thinking? I presume there has been some evolution in the thinking. Is
 that evolution captured here?

This comment is probably for the solution discussion rather than here:  are HITs unconvincing
candidates for lookup in the DNS?  6.1 discusses their lack of mapping to the conventional
definitions of "host".  We might draw an architectural line that says they need their
own database, with a thought of facilitating resolving it with NAPTR/S-NAPTR.   The
comment on RR use is that they will specify one, that the usage is much like IPSECKEY -
but this parallel may not hold all that well, if the one usage of IPSECKEY is for
opportunistic IPSec very much within the conventional definition of mapping to a host.

This could become a Discuss if it seems important to change the positive statement
that an RR will be specified.
