This document proposes a mechanism for finding a URI associated
with a solicitation class keyword, which is defined in RFC 3865, the
No Soliciting SMTP Service Extension.  Solicitation class keywords
are simple labels consisting of a domain name that has been reversed,
such as "org.example.adv".  These solicitation class keywords are
inserted in selected header fields or used in the ESMTP service
extension, including a new "No-Solicit:" header, which can contain
one or more solicitation class keywords inserted by the sender.

This document specifies an application based on the Dynamic Delegation
Discovery System (DDDS) described in RFC 3401 and related documents.
An algorithm is specified to associate a solicitation class keyword
with a URI which contains further information about the meaning and
usage of that solicitation class keyword.  For example, the
registrant of the "example.org" domain could use this mechanism to
create a URI which contains detailed information about the
"org.example.adv" solicitation class keyword.

This is now a Proposed Standard Protocol.

This document specifies an Internet standards track protocol for
the Internet community, and requests discussion and suggestions
for improvements.  Please refer to the current edition of the
"Internet Official Protocol Standards" (STD 1) for the
standardization state and status of this protocol.  Distribution
of this memo is unlimited.
