Not quite! DFA is planning on running Deanster. We're just not vetting
nodes or hosting them. No reason we can't link to them, map them, and
push them (much like we do w/dean directory). We're just not
controlling, directing, or hosting them.

We talked about this with Zephyr, and the deal is - if DFA run Deanster
then it cannot handle Authentication for the Nodes or they would have to
be vetted by DFA (ie official) so I don't think this is possible.
