> If the use case is to publish the time at which a particular RRSet was last modified, then perhaps you also need to encode the class and the rrtype in there (and I guess if you're using TXT, you'd better not plan to publish the date on which some other TXT RRSet was changed).
Recursion detected :)
Because of the way some legacy implementations (who runs those nowadays)
seem to choke on unknown record types, the TXT 8601 in full profile (as you
point out) seems to be the cleanest way.
