Technical Summary

  The DNS DNAME RRTYPE redirects subtrees of the domain name
  space. This memo updates the original specification found in RFC
  2672. It also aligns RFC 3363 and RFC 4294 with the revision.

Working Group Summary

  The DNS Extensions Working Group has spent a considerable amount of
  time on this document. It is the product of extended review. The
  chairs believe the WG consensus to be strong.

Document Quality

  The document is partly the result of experience with the original
  DNAME specification, and highlights a number of issues that have
  proven troublesome in practice. In the opinion of the WG, the draft
  clarifies these issues without introducing wire changes to the
  protocol.
