Are folks on the dhcwg list following ths mDNS thread on namedroppers?

There are discussions on rfc2937 that I think folks here could
contribute to.

Yes, RFC 2937 can provide the *order* in which the services are used.

Not sure I agree with that. mdns-enable doesn't overlap with RFC 2937,
since that document isn't clear about enable/disable semantics.

Is that true? No implementations at all?
