The transports should be TCP, UDP, or (arguably or not) other transport
protocols. TLS is not a transport.
Also, strictly speaking, the function that is performed is lookup or mapping,
not "search". The difference is large.
Additionally, it's useful to distinguish The DNS (i.e., with the existing
well-know roots) from A DNS -- the latter using the same protocols and records,
but not sharing the same initial roots.
