Subject: Re: [xri] Designating DNS discovery for non-HTTP URIs

Assuming I read your statements below correctly, I don't agree that "this will be a non-issue for HTTP". 

If the spec has a "MUST check DNS and find a location for site-meta in there, or else fail" (the "Add DNS record to authorize" scenario from your previous message on this topic) then anybody who doesn't munge with DNS will not be able to use XRD properly, assuming their library implements the spec properly.

If we go with the approach that HTTP-based discovery can be used with any URI scheme, but allow those interested to double check the delegation of authority using DNS, to does defer the question to the individual use cases the care. So this will be a non-issue for HTTP, and an optional check (even if defined as a MUST, not really enforceable) for any other URI.
