Re: non-TXT RR: reuse MB/MD/MF/MG/MR?
Actually for most dns software they are not supported and treated just like
unknown record type. So we can reuse them but i'll be harder to push
through IETF and on implementation its same as unknown type.
P.S. I'm pretty certain Microsoft does not support MB/MD/MF/MG/MR, so
we'll probably hear objections right away now...
