Technical Summary
  This document defines an extensible method to return additional
  information about the cause of DNS errors.  Though created primarily
  to extend SERVFAIL to provide additional information about the cause
  of DNS and DNSSEC failures, the Extended DNS Errors option defined
  in this document allows all response types to contain extended error

Working Group Summary
  The document went through a rigorous consensus process, and there were
  several points which took a few iterations to resolve, but they were
  all resolved to strong approval from the working group.

Document Quality
  There are no current implementations, but both software vendors and
  third party DNS providers are planning to implement these error codes
  now that the specifics have been agreed on.
