Sorry, no, that's why I said that I'm lost with DNS issues, and haven't
the time to learn more about it. The U/S-NAPTR records allow to locate
"services" somehow starting from a given name, and at the end you could
get an address record plus a protocol to use. For our purposes here we
would need a TXT record with the signing policy at the end. Or maybe
the address of a Web server hosting the signing policy, I can't tell...
