Right - but isn't that already covered under the reverse lookup section?

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.
