More to the point there’s no obvious way to keep someone like Tony Finch from doing this.

It would be useful to put together a few use cases and run prototype variations against them.  There’s no obvious reason why more than one format might not be made available for different purposes (and with careful curation).

One question is that surely somebody else must have thought of this for conveying other sorts of non-DNS community metadata?  What lessons might be learned?
