As far as I can tell, Robin is correct. The current ILNP specification does not deal with the case of a DNS name that points to multiple different machines. It seems pretty clear that some form of indirection will be needed so that a DNS name can point to a list of names, each of which has I and L (and maybe LP) records. The good thing is that there are a number of mechanisms available in DNS to do this, and the logic doesn't break anything.

                  not relevant to the question of whether a single
                  ILNP FQDN can lead to multiple unique hosts, each
                  of which has a single Identifier and potentially
                  multiple Locators.
