Greetings. After the DNSOP interim meeting last week, Warren set up a new mailing list. Its description is:

There is a desire to have better methods for parent zones in the DNS to advertise DNS nameserver capabilities and zone features to resolvers.

This list discusses mechanisms to provide this support within the DNS. This includes the ability to provide more information about a DNS delegation in record(s) at the parent, as well as additional capabilities beyond the DNS's current NS-style delegation.  Examples include aliasing delegation with other domain names, delegating DNSSEC management to operators, specifying encrypted transports, and so on.

The new mailing list is a good place to discuss both the general idea of new types of delegation for the DNS, as well as specific proposals like the DELEG proposal which was first discussed at IETF-118.

The list can be found at https://www.ietf.org/mailman/listinfo/dd

Anyone interested in how delegation might work in the future should join. Thanks!
