Since we've already moved on on the call, I'll mention this by email.

Contrary to the suggestion that there is no DNS record for an IP, you *could* actually do DNS-based validation for IP addresses, by adding/modifying a TXT record on the reverse lookup DNS entry for the IP.  If you can do that, you obviously can also validate via, so we might as well allow it.
