Apologies for the delay.  A general inquiry to the group, not
specifically to RIPE.  Any ideas on when we might expect to see some
DNS implementations support DNS over DCCP, if ever?  It might be quite
handy in lieu of the ongoing DoS nuisance.  If not, why not?  Technical
barriers, funding issues or lack of demand perhaps?
