Regarding the privacy aspects of (m)DNS-SD:
I still think it would be beneficial to finalize a document on a 
and I still want to work on that.

I agree, the lack of feedback within the group is a problem;
we have come up with quite a few different proposals and there is no 
clear "favorite".
Also, I see the problem that we try to solve too many use cases with a 
single specification
(p2p mobile devices, classical  DNS server, printer, ...).

For P2P applications like the tic-tac-toe example from the WWDC talks,
the PSK could be extracted from the TLS connection and be used to derive 
a secret for obfuscating the
service related information for the (next) discovery process.
The interface matches the one from our proposal for a DNS-SD/mDNS based 
manually authenticated
device pairing protocol.
We could either go in the TLS/ESNI direction or stick with our older 
proposals and seamlessly
integrate a privacy extension into mDNS-SD / Bonjour.

Listening to the great talks by Apple I wonder if Apple is interested in 
working with us on
a specification that would fit Apple's use cases of Bonjour.

If someone is interested, I would be happy to collaborate.
(However, as I work at a University and the projects I am involved in 
currently are not directly related
to (m)DNS-SD, the time I can spend on this topic is limited until I find 
a matching project.)

Kind regards,
