This document specifies how DNS resource records are named and
structured to facilitate service discovery.  Given a type of service
that a client is looking for, and a domain in which the client is
looking for that service, this mechanism allows clients to discover a list of
named instances of that desired service, using standard DNS queries.
This mechanism is referred to as DNS-based Service Discovery, or DNS-SD.

This is now a Proposed Standard.

STANDARDS TRACK: This document specifies an Internet standards track
protocol for the Internet community,and requests discussion and suggestions
