With the ubiquitous success of service discovery techniques, curious
clients are faced with an increasing overload of service instances
and options listed when they browse for services.  A typical domain
may contain web servers, remote desktop servers, printers, file servers, video
content servers, automatons, Points of Presence using artificial intelligence,
etc., all advertising their presence.  Unsurprisingly, it
is expected that some protocols and services will choose the comfort
of anonymity and avoid discovery.

This memo describes a new experimental protocol for this purpose
utilizing the Domain Pseudonym System (DPS), and discusses strategies
for its successful implementation and deployment.  This document defines an 
Experimental Protocol for the Internet community.
