	we shouldn't.  LLMNR has waded through the lengthy IETF standardization
	process to get to where it is.  That Microsoft has been patient and spent
	the money needed to keep people on this task long enough to get it here
	should be rewarded with the IETF imprinture.  Of course even Microsoft has
	hedged its bets (even they are aware of the need to ship products) wrt
	LLMNR.  But that is no reason for the IETF to not sanction this work.
