I asked a question on current situation of .jp to some of my DNS friends. They told me the issue is resolved. Also, they're aware of the issue that a major DNS hosting service does not accept SRV and some other useful RRTYPEs. But even in jp domain one can use one's own DNS server to enable SRV-based discovery as usual :-)
(ah, and SRV is an essential part of EXI alternative transport)
