[Standards-JIG] Depricating DialBack w/ new CA

As Peter moves forward with the BIS version of the RFC's, I'm wondering
if we should finally punt on dialback. The reason it's been kept around
so long is that self-signed certs aren't sufficient security, and adding
in the DNS layer helps out with that. 

 

Now that we've got a CA, and certs are practical for all, this reason
doesn't hold as much weight as it used to. 

 

Anyone other than me in favor of seeing dialback die off in 2007?
