Yep. We definitely have to specify the objective.

objective = ["AN_registrar", objective-flags, loop-count, [radius, priority, weight, method]]

This is explained in
But you guys need to decide if that's what you want; I defined it following
input from Toerless about making it mDNS-equivalent.

No consensus from me :-). This conclusion applies for non-GRASP-capable devices.
For GRASP-capable devices, specifically pledges that will shortly join the ACP,
there is no difficulty with the flip to TCP. The grasp -07 text is broken on this,
but I have corrected text and running code. We already figured out the insecure
mode of GRASP too (already in the -07 text). In fact the proxy ASA itself can
enforce the necessary regime (loop count of 1 and use of link-local addresses).
Up and running at

If you are joining the ACP you can be strictly GRASP-only, with *our*
security fences. I see that as more secure than mDNS.
