We have been trying to use this document to define terms. In the case of DNAME, it doesn't appear to actually mean anything (at least, I couldn't find an RFC that said what the D was for). I suspect it was the early DNS folks being cute, something along the lines of "D is bigger than C". Having said that, we will add a reference without adding an explanation.

Yes, that all came from the extensive WG discussion. You are correct that there is not an RFC that says "here are the kinds of referrals and what they mean", but there was a strong desire that we define "referrals" because that term is used in many other documents in many contexts. Someone could (maybe SHOULD) write a "DNS referrals" RFC, and the terminology-ter document (if such a thing comes into existence) could rip out this section and refer to it.

The main thing here is that this document doesn't change an existing definition of "referrals". We just kinda realized that we had to get it written down the first time.
