That's what I've just been looking at. :)

I'm experimenting with it and trying to determine where a good
hand-off between the zeroconf layer and a web layer might be for
suites of related (but functionally distinct) services mostly
delivered over HTTP.  Since DNS-level record keeping is rather more
heavyweight than registering and updating web resources, I'm thinking
a certain amount of restraint and stability on the DNS[-SD] side and
more flexibility on the web side might be best.

...which led to wondering what the best way to mark up directories of
computing services and protocols in [X]HTML might be.
