so the policy you're arguing for is that clients should always randomize?
When the client has topology information it should follow that (i.e. rules
1 - 8). When it doesn't have topology information it should use the order
it gets from the DNS (i.e. rule 10, and historical practice). This lets
the client's recursive server do whatever it thinks is sensible with the
RRset, which is usually round-robin balancing.
i can live with that.
