2. The vast majority of DNS zones are served by DNS servers
at hosting companies. This is especially important if new
address architecture uses existing DNS infrastructure.

be as reliable as traditional routing.

They would promote their servers as running on genuine PI address
space, not that second-rate, cheap, often a little slower to
start-up, type of LISP-ALT address space.
