I like the idea of somehow using registry data to help build configs, but
confess to not liking the idea of using DNS to do so (the IDR proposal), mostly
because I don't see trusting the IP registries to do this, and in fact have a health
dose of paranoia about giving routing control (i.e. the availability the
service) to a service that can be manipulated by a single person
