[Standards] alternate SRV records?

Some scenarios...

1. Let's say you want to connect to a MUC service. Does it make sense to
have an SRV record for that? Such as:

_xmpp-groupchat._tcp.conference.jabber.org 5269 athena.jabber.org

2. Let's say you want to connect to a pubsub service that pumps out
notifications. How about this?

_xmpp-notification._tcp.pubsub.jabber.org 5269 athena.jabber.org

3. Let's say that you want to advertise a c2s or s2s port where TLS is
required (e.g., because you have different firewall rules for non-TLS
connections). How about this (some different ports)?

_xmpp-server-tls._tcp.jabber.org 5270 athena.jabber.org

_xmpp-server-tls._tcp.jabber.org 5223 athena.jabber.org

Just wondering...
