ILNP puts the interesting state at the edge DNS servers.

DNS is used in a very similar way to how it is used today: 
an FQDN is mapped to an identifier and set of locators.  
Today's DNS gives you the same information, except that
there's only one locator and it's concatenated with the
identifier and called an address.
