Hi there,

The openpgp-mailnews-header defines a mechanism for senders to notify
recipients of both their preferences (w.r.t OpenPGP keys) and the keying
material to be used (e.g. keyid).

dnsext-rfc2538bis defines a mechanism where keying material is stored
within the DNS (e.g. OpenPGP).  The overlap here is that users may wish
to store their key in the DNS (via dnsext-rfc2538bis) and refer to them
using openpgp-mailnews-header.

Since openpgp-mailnews-header specifies using a URI to refer to the
location, it would seem -- to me at least -- that there needs to be some
kind of URI specification to allow you to refer to DNS resource records.

Is there one already, or work underway to produce a DNS URI spec.?

There is this, by the same author as rfc2538bis:
