	SRV is used, just not for http.  I have previously publish
	internet drafts about how to use SRV with http.  It got not
	pickup from brower/proxy developers.

	This can be revived but it needs ACTIVE support from browser and
	proxy developers.   Complain to your browser vendor if you want
	this revived.
