Bashing misconception time:

xml.resource.org currently does point at a fully maintained IETF server: 
grenache.tools.ietf.org. The problem is that grenache is currently down.

The real problem with the NAME xml.resource.org is that the name is 
currently a singleton that only points one place.

We need to get the NAME repurposed such that we can redirect it as need 
be to a different server OR point it at multiple redundant servers.

Once we do that, we can do lots of other things.
