Let's assume that there is a FooBar server in SiteA. If another

I thought we agreed, completely outside of IPv6 concerns, that
shipping addresses in application data was bad.
what's this "we" stuff? some individuals may have thought this was bad,
but there's never been widespread agreement. actually it's bad to force
all apps to use DNS names - which are often less reliable, slower, less
correct, and more ambiguous than IP addresses.
