It's been discussed on the channel and mentioned on server-dev/jdev (one of
the two) in mentioning routing.

I've done some research (read the DNS RFC) and we can add a IX record to a
DNS table, and it would be within the spec. However, the problem is that we
don't want to step on someone elses "IX toes." In the RFC it also mentions
how people use the NULL record to transport routing information for
undocumented extensions.

A new routing proposal will be posted by me sometime soon. I've been out
this weekend so I haven't really had time to work on it. (and others)
