> As I pointed out earlier in this thread [1] (before moving it to dns-operations) getting the browser developers in on SRV records isn't all that easy.
> The applicability statement in RFC 2782 says that SRV records cannot be used for a protocol unless the relevant protocol spec says they can, and the browser developers lobby hard at the W3C to make sure that's not going to happen with HTTP.   We would need at least an equally strong lobbying effort from the DNS community to counter it, and some pretty solid arguments to dispel the FUD from the browsers about how it would destroy the Internet (or at least their market share).

I thought the problem with SRV was the multiple round trips?
