An implementor pinged me about this. Although the spec says the lack of 
a status TXT record should be assumed as equivalent to "avail", I now 
think it should be "offline". That is, you can be publishing TXT records 
  but not be available for link-local communications. So we should 
assume that someone is unavailable unless we positively determine otherwise.
