    Christ, now they've put a Search the Web option under the ad, so more space is wasted.

    Drop that suggestion on both the Jabber mailing lists and the DNS ones. Jabber has been submitted to the IETF and is called XMPP there. So getting the DNS people to consider a specific record type might work.

    Then again, what's wrong without such a DNS extension?
