Title : A DNS RR for encoding DHCP information (DHCID RR)
Author(s) : M. Stapp, T. Lemon, A. Gustafsson

It is possible for multiple DHCP clients to attempt to update the
same DNS FQDN as they obtain DHCP leases. Whether the DHCP server or
the clients themselves perform the DNS updates, conflicts can arise.
To resolve such conflicts, 'Resolution of DNS Name Conflicts'
proposes storing client identifiers in the DNS to unambiguously
associate domain names with the DHCP clients to which they refer.
This memo defines a distinct RR type for this purpose for use by
DHCP clients and servers, the 'DHCID' RR.

NOTE: The mail server at ietf.org can return the document in
MIME-encoded form by using the "mpack" utility. To use this
feature, insert the command "ENCODING mime" before the "FILE"
command. To decode the response(s), you will need "munpack" or
a MIME-compliant mail reader. Different MIME-compliant mail readers
exhibit different behavior, especially when dealing with
"multipart" MIME messages (i.e. documents which have been split
up into multiple messages), so check your local documentation on
how to manipulate these messages.
Below is the data which will enable a MIME compliant mail reader
implementation to automatically retrieve the ASCII version of the
