Not necessarily. One of the proposals that went into DKIM had characteristic

Unproved speculation. As you know, email, compared to HTTP and P2P
(neither of which sought approval from the IETF) constitutes an
increasingly tiny part of the Internet load these days. The serious
pressure comes from applications that never came near the IETF.
like ip addresses (i.e. fixed size small data) would not work so well for
when data served & answer would either come close to or exceed 512bytes
Unproved speculation. As you know, 512 is not a UDP limit it's a DNS
implementation limit which was long ago removed by EDNS0 - an IETF
The other minor matter is that the Internet is already participating
in a billion+ DK signed and verified emails per day - I've been
watching, but as yet, no news at 11. At what point do you expect the
pressure to be noticed?
William. I admire your interest in optimizing DNS load, but, as Knuth
might ask, is it premature? If you think not, convince us otherwise.
