All these have similar adoption rate risks. Mark has a point that it's
more difficult to check for the last one.

There are orders of magnitude fewer resolver instances to upgrade than
HTTP user agents (popular web browsers aren't the only HTTP clients).

I don't follow how ANAME, if resolvers have to implement it, can be
deployed within a few years, and fixing CNAME takes at least 10 years.
They both involve resolver changes.

SRV is most elegant. IMO we should push the resolver-side CNAME handling
change through so one day in the future it is available widely.
