That's why I want to submit an RFC for an OTRFP RRtype record for
use with DNSSEC/DANE, pretty much analogue to:


It won't help you much against google changing dns on your at gmail.com,
but at least yourname at yourdomain.com should be pretty reliable.

ps. That, and I still disagree with Ian and think RFCs count as peer
reviews publications in the context of my Erdős–Bacon number.
