Judging from the title of RFC 2538, I believe that someone has.  ;-)

2538 Storing Certificates in the Domain Name System (DNS). D.
     Eastlake, O. Gudmundsson. March 1999. (Format: TXT=19857 bytes)

Eastlake may still be at IBM, but TIS Labs is now part of NAI, and
Gudmundsson may have gone elsewhere.
