But, if that could be done -- have the DNS server read

Probably, but this is hypothetical as the DNS protocol
doesn't support that.
You read my mind -- yes hypothetical ...
I had seen messages mentioning cases where perhaps 100
DNS transactions would be needed to get the SPF record
and I wondered if a more direct approach was possible.
