I wasn't there, but I suspect this perhaps was part of that discussion:


It looks like a useful starting point for discussion.  For what I've
needed I've generally been doing PTR RRs (on server-oriented subnets
primarily), but I can imagine the problem is much more complicated in
other environments.

Architecturally-speaking, this might highlight some of the classic
theoretical arguments for names being assigned to service/application
and addresses to a node/host, as opposed to assigning a name to an
address and an address to an interface attachment.
