Many ways have been discussed to make a mapping between one logical
name and many IP addresses. These schemes all rely on having a machine
resolve a name every time it wishes to open a circuit. Most implementations
have caches, do they not? It seems that for this to work, a resolver would
need to tell a client "don't cache this response". Then the next time
a circuit was established, the resolver would be able to look at the
available resources and determine which IP address to return.
Don't get me wrong, I don't think we should really do this, but if one wanted
to have total control over resource allocation, caching techniques would
have to be considered.
