Comment(by zooko):

 I have the vague idea that the domain name can serve as the the grid-id
 for some use cases.  For example, currently
 {{{http://webapi.allmydata.com:8123/cap/$CAP}}} always means the prod
 grid.  {{http://testgrid.allmydata.org:3567/cap/$CAP}}} always means the
 test grid.  It isn't clear if we can hack DNS to provide privacy in the
 sense of not accidentally revealing the cap to a DNS server, but at least
 I would like to consider the advantages of using a separate, widely-
 understood tool like DNS instead of inventing our own grid ids.
