If TXT is to be used as a fallback mechianism then we would have to know how
many it would help. Unless it helps more or less every domain administrator
who cannot set up SRV then it is bad as a fallback mechanism.
I would believe that most DNS hosts that believe SRV is difficult/hard/not
supported also believe that everything else except MX, A, CNAME and maybe
even NS is equally difficult/hard/not supported and thus does not support
Anyone have an estimation on how many this would help?
