No, the other way around. You, in a protocol, use either srv or uri
depending on wether you need more than hostname and port or a uri.
The point of SRVs is to provide a single way to find a service. When
additional information is needed, it ought to be in an associated record
(TXT or maybe a special URI one), but the host/port ought to remain in
We can discuss this further next week. Note that I consider addressing
this important but not a show-stopper on this doc. The only showstopper
was the "alias" issue (i.e., that, IMO, the names need to be registered
in the informal SRV registry, and that IANA ports aliases are not
appropriate as a stop-gap until that registry is integrated as per the
Ietf mailing list
