* Allow look-up of other DNS Resource Record (RR) types such as PTR, SRV, TXT,
* Allow reverse lookups (e.g. to get the host name associated with, do a PTR look-up of
* For Zeroconf, allow mDNS look-up of DNS-SD advertisements. That requires
look-up of PTR, SRV and TXT records.

Considerations, complications:

* Multiple answers (many RR responses can include multiple answers, and the
client needs to process all of them).
* Multiple responses (in the case of mDNS look-ups of DNS-SD advertisements,
there can be an unbounded number of responses from multiple network devices).
* Caching. A lot more complicated than the current case of a hostname
resolving to a single IP address.
