Such software would not see this kind of data unless a user
of the server tried to use this stuff, and in that case I don't see
why that user couldn't upgrade her own software to get it to work.
Because it's not their software? If I wanted to do PKI through DNS, and my
ISP's server did not support TCP, I might be stuck. Personally, I don't
depend on my ISP for DNS, but many users do.
If your ISP doesn't support DNS/TCP you are in trouble
today. The ISP is obviously clueless and the faster you
leave the better it will be for you.
Argueing against doing PKI through DNS based on ISP's not
supporting TCP is a complete furphy.
