Yes, but I don't see the majority of the "DNS problems" people
complain about stemming from IRC servers, or even email addresses.
Its a "corporate identity" thing, or at least it seems like its
being marketed that way to me.

But yes, you're right - any neo-DNS solution should also take
into account other "things" such as email. Think "service location"
and "service searching/indexing" rather than "website keyword".
