I was thinking more in terms of a new DNS RR type:      DOTNS

There are interesting problems with using extra delegation records to
bootstrap DoT:

The DNS protocol has to have special logic for every RRtype that appears
at a delegation, so you would need some kind of signalling to indicate
that this is OK for all the parties involved. (I have not thought about
the details of what would be required...)

You also need to upgrade EPP so that registrars can get the extra records
into the registry database so that the registry can put them in the TLD.
And then wait an indefinite time for the registrars to upgrade their
customer-facing interfaces so that you can tell them about the extra

It's very awkward.
