Why is it important what the DNS manager cares about? Parsers, including null parsers, would come with the same sub-package that enables the new RR type definition. Their complexity would only matter to the people who read/maintain their sources.
PS: For anyone who didn't read my previous message, I am NOT saying that it's fine to overload everything into TXT. I am saying that new RRTYPEs that are text blobs interpreted by client software wouldn't necessarily be bad.Agreed. That doesn't preclude syntax checking on loading the zone, though.
As a Windows shop, there is no hiding of the long product development battles between the *nix weenies world and the WinDoze world. At a general level, the WinDoze world is not one that is use to and relies on text based "editors" configuration, they need the GUI. I even recourse getting a private message suggesting my customers must be "stupid."
Nonetheless, to reach critical mass, it is important the GUI is developed for this stuff. I can't rely on customers becoming text editor people if that is the only way to make this work. They only way I could even begin to offer DKIM, ADSP and even now ATPS is to provide a GUI, like this public version we have here for ADSP and ATPS
http://www.winserver.com/public/wcadspJust consider that ATPS has SHA1, BASE32 functions to produce the records. That adds complexity for any DNS server manager (Windows or Bind) to consider. Its just not a plug and play consideration. Its probably easier for the ISP Web-based managers since its more of an add-on to there current DNS software, using command line tools to act on GUI posted information.
