We should keep this simple. If e.g. recursive server data needs to be
updated more frequently than SIP data, I would simply say that lifetime
should be the shortest. When you contact server to update DNS data, you
can at the same time update other data like SIP server address.

Note that the draft says:

   If client has received a lifetime with this option, and contacts
   server to receive new or update any existing data prior to its
   expiration, it SHOULD also update data covered by this option.  If no
   new lifetime is received, it MUST behave as if no value was ever

In line with that SHOULD, there's no good reason to have multiple
