No, I know.  Section 6, however, got changed in meaning between the
-05 and -06 drafts.  I don't recall whether it was due to a
controversy on-list, or in an IETF meeting, or in a hallway
discussion, or in off-list disagreements.  Anyway, it originally
suggested asking only the authority for the data and later said for
the QNAME or its parent.  I do recall the discussions having been
fairly painful, I just don't recall why.

I would never speculate as to what actually inspired anyone to do
anything in the DNS :)
