As I think Ian said, this wasn't designed to be a bulk metadata exchange
protocol, it's a query protocol. It's meant very much like DNS. I would
advocate *using* DNS if DNS administrators had any interest in running DNS to
its full capability, and I'm still fairly convinced the only practical long
term solution to discovery is DNS records based on username domain lookup.
