True enough, but unfortunately, it's not done in a way that we can make use of the identifier in the routing subsystem or in the transport protocols.

The transport protocols, well they generally act on behalf of something which can do the lookup and supply transport with right address, as long the DNS server does not require "who"->"where" indirection ;).

The transport protocols unfortunately need the identifier in the packet to demux connections.
