% Not all addresses are published in DNS.

Quoth Steve... "There are no urgent DNS problems"
Are the apps for which IPv6 is enabled that -can not-
use address literals? If so, then Steve is wrong and
the DNS has become critical infrastructure to the working
of the Internet. Otherwise, we should trapese down the
path of separation of topology locator from stack identifier.
and then revisit the DNS to see if its best used as a lookup
service between these two things... :)
