I should add too that in order to do better at pushing on middleboxes we
need to acknowledge the problem. Please don't tell me to stop spreading
the myth that it's difficult to deploy new RR types! Work with us to
fix the problem, and recognize that it is largely a social one.
If we ever want to use CLASSes to expand the RR type namespace, we'll
definitely need even more support from clients/servers/providers. So
it's worth considering that now rather than later, because we shouldn't
want to have to go through this middlebox un-break exercise multiple
I would even suggest that we immediately add such a new class or three
just to be able to test compliance. This wouldn't preclude new classes
that aren't IN RR type namespace extension classes.
