Oh, I am. It's just that I'm not a big fan of pulling out big guns for
things that can be solved much more simply.
Stuff like mail & web are often reasonably symmetric. I'm glad that
those SRV records seem to reflect that. Of course, you still don't get
nice algorithms like least connection, or locality based connection to
work with; you move that decision to the client (who hasn't a baldy what
the servers are doing).
