That's not a big revision.  "Big" revisions usually entail wire protocol
changes.  What you want is called a "SRV" record and it was submitted to
the RFC Editor for "extended last call" (befitting its experimental
status) about a week ago.  An earlier version can be had from any Internet
Drafts repository as draft-gulbrandsen-dns-rr-srvcs-01.txt.

Tim, next time I'd like you to do three things differently:

(1) do your homework before posting widely
(2) post to big-internet or nanog but not both
(3) only include one copy of your .signature
