I'm considering submitting a presentation proposal for the upcoming
NANOG which may include related 'stuff'. It may just turn out to be
a BoF , or prehaps a lightning talk -- it depends on how the
presentation turns out...  :-)

Instead of 'correction mechanisms', it would be looking specifically
at behavioral aspects of some of this.

Let's quit looking at overly-simplistic correction mechanisms.  Do spell
checkers force autocorrection with only a single choice per misspelled

Return an A RR that points <correction service>-controlled system.  Said
system examines HTTP "Host" header, then returns a page listing multiple

"The site you specified does not exist.  Here is a list of sites that
you may be trying to access: ..."

I'm generally ignoring other protocols to limit the discussion scope.
However, one can see how SMTP and FTP might be similarly handled.  (IMHO
not as good as a SRV-ish system that could return NXDOMAIN per service,
but actually somewhat usable today.)
