That draft associates a hostname with a URI pointing to a DID document, i.e. the identifier for a digital identity, rather than with a blockchain address in general. At the ID4me project (www.id4me.org) we are also working on a way to store a DID document directly within a DNS record, saving the HTTP connection. However, I am not sure whether Eduardo's use case is about identities or more general than that.

I would have comments on Eduardo's proposal (e.g. in the case of the TXT record I would recommend the use of a specific underscored prefix) but possibly this is a discussion for DNSOP, rather than for DNS-OARC.
