That is an absolutely absurd idea. First try:
$ host -tsrv _xmpp-client._tcp.gmail.com
Do you see talk.google.com in the list of hosts? NO. Can you be sure
that after 3 months the list of hosts will be the same? NO. I think
smarter people than us has thought of that and it is ridiculous to
pretend that we can do it better. 

Just to mention that nslookup is part of bind-tools, dns-tools, or
bind-dnstools, depending on the distro and package maintainers should
add it as a dependency in the new version.
