The IPsec key management schema requires that MB records be supported
in the DNS for user-oriented key management to scale. At least one
IPsec implementation uses them. I'm also being deliberately high-level
here, so quibbles about details in this explanation will be ignored by
me. The crypto just isn't interesting to the IDN list.
If there are further questions, we ought to take this OFF the IDN
list. The bottom line for IDN is simple -- MB records MUST continue
to work. MB records include hostnames/domainnames as a component
of the data element.
