Re: Using DNS for .ampr.org addresses

Consider also that the UUCP smarthost to which you send your (probably) 
Internet-destined mail inevitably also makes some local decisions about how, 
where and when to forward mail - as do most internet mail hosts. Your 
smarthost will have its own smarthost, and so on ad infinitum.

So having a local decision at ve7foobar.ampr.org which uses a local lookup 
table of TNC-reachable hosts before default-routing to the smarthost is not 
at all inconsistent with what goes on Internet-wide.
