Maybe the there are two separate issues.

 - How to containerize and standardize passing of configuration
information from service provider to consumer. Maybe a MIME type with
sub-registration of protocol (email, calendar, VOIP, ...), and mandating
it be sent encrypted.

 - How to transport that information across whatever transport is
available. SRV record to MIME blob URL, sent in email, HTTP/FTP
download, ...
