Unlike what many people said, there is an existing solution to do so,
it is called NAPTR, and is specified in RFC
3403. <http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/NAPTR_record>

Like what many people said, it is not usable in practice since the
regular Web browser does not use it (and I assume it is your target).
