Yes.

My point above is to do with what existing ANAME-like things expect client
software to do, i.e. connecting to hosts rather than services. It isn't a
judgment about what's good, but an observation about what is done. And it
raises questions about trade-offs between compatibiliy with the installed
base or improving things for the future. I don't have the answers :-)

Tony.
