[dns-operations] Pointer to discussion of name compression trade-offs?

I recall seeing a discussion (perhaps a few years back) of balancing
CPU-cost vs. space gained in DNS name compression.  Where IIRC it
was suggested that most of the gain may come from only storing and
checking the offsets of particular elements of the response, perhaps
just the qname and the owner of the current RRset, or was it owners
of all previous RRsets?  Or something like that, and that this saved
CPU with compression effectiveness not suffering much.

Does anyone have a pointer to discussion of this topic?
