In any case, your comment is useful input, as it shows that calling
proposed stack architecture in  "hostname-oriented" may be wrong.
Calling it "service-name-oriented" -- or simply "name-oriented" --
be more appropriate. Thanks for the input.
Full support for the idea of a *name-oriented architecture*.
In it, the locator-identifier separation principle applies
naturally: names are the identifiers; addresses, or addresses plus
ports, are the locators.
Address plus port locators are tneeded to reach applications in
hosts that have to share their IPv4 address with other hosts ( e.g.
behind a NAT with configured port-forwarding.)
*Service-names* are the existing tool to advertise address plus port
locators, and and to permit efficient multihoming because, in *SRV
records* which are returned by the DNS to service-name queries:
- several locators can be received for one name, possibly with a
mix of IPv4 and IPv6
- locators can include port numbers
- priority and weight parameters of locators provide for backup and
load sharing control.
IMO, service names and SRV records SHOULD be supported asap in all
resolvers (in addition to host names and A/AAAA records that they
Any view on this?
i totally agree with you in all points, from my perspective , there is
no sufficent support
for identifying and signing tools, like DNS TSIG whitch will be from

I was following a interesting software project , BUT
On Linux (at least on Debian), you need the mDNSResponder package
Apple on the Bonjour downloads page. Unfortunately, Avahi doesn't yet
implement all of the API functions UIA needs.
So "sahred secret" http://www.ietf.org/rfc/rfc2845.txt are not
implemented into "avahi"
for wide area distribiution since 2 years. And Novell / SUSE seems
to have no interest aswell.
just my 50 cents
