nothing less than this "ark" will improve confidence in dns results to the
point where every new application won't need its own end-to-end security
model to ensure that dns hasn't been used to spoof them. i think the useful
part of this discussion has already gone by; either one believes the vision
or one does not, and i don't expect any new converts in either direction.
