I am watching the video, and slide 17: G.7.3 resolveable domain names.

I want to suggest that the *protocol* should describe:
  1) what does it mean to resolve a domain name.
  2) which fields, SMTPs commands, etc. have things that might to resolve.

I think that then the Internet applicability should say whether or not this
should be on.
