What kind of network servers would that include? LDAP, FTP, SMB, SMTP,
HTTP, STUN, TURN, POP, IMAP, GOPHER, etc.? Why would we duplicate DNS
SRV over XMPP? Maybe there are good reasons to do so, but right now I'm
not seeing them.

IIRC, one argument is that you might want to send out a query for a
certain kind of network server or XMPP service, and find out which
entities meet those criteria. But that applies to XMPP entities too
(e.g., MUC services), so it might not be part of a generalized version
of XEP-0215.
