This document adds the 'LoST-Validation' service tag to the
Straightforward-Naming Authority PoinTeR (S-NAPTR) Application
Service Tag IANA registry.  This tag can appear in a Naming Authority
Pointer (NAPTR) Domain Name System (DNS) record to assist clients of
the Location-to-Service Translation (LoST) Protocol in identifying
LoST servers designated for location validation.  This tag and the
information about its use update RFC 5222, which enables the explicit
discovery of a server that supports location validation.

This is now a Proposed Standard.
