	yeah, i went and dug through our netflow records and even pegged
the ip up for a few seconds on a router to collect a few requests and saw
very little traffic to this IP.

	My suggestion is rename from gps -> gps1 and drop the gps
dns name.  That combined with some bind/whatever views that
scope the dns responses are effective since it's a DNS name.

	While it's similar to the wiscnet stuff, it's not identical
and can be [easily] mitigated.
