Has anyone tried publishing non-DNS information via DNS? Advantages:

 % Automatic distributed caching on various nameservers.

 % UDP, so no TCP overhead

I know SPF uses this, and clamav publishes their current version
number this way, but has anyone done this on a large scale basis?

to understand and assimilate technology. We feel that resistance to
new ideas and technology is unwise and ultimately futile.
