There is more flexibility if we e.g. introduce a new record type in the DNS
for the nodes that support the new mechanism (call it
an "ID", "WHO" or "WHICH" record if you'd like).
A multi6-aware node will look for such record and, if found, it can do the new
song and dance to get id/loc separation. If not found it falls back to
looking for AAAA.
