I'm trying to convince you that they all suck for some portion of the
market. The market's answer to this has been to use them all, choosing
according to their specific environment.

Starting from that assumption, therefore, the appropriate ressponse is to
develop mail-config solutions that work for each of them, so that the
users can use the one they prefer.

SRV covers the largest audience -- people with an email address and the
ability to resolve a domain name. Let's start there.

If you want to develop a new super-duper configuration service that works
for everybody almost all of the time, I'd be interested in that too.
