OK, perhaps I should have said I don't like this particlular design.

I would prefer something where, for example, in the case where we are
using a 'name' as opposed to an address that we:

- figure out how many addresses/name we want to use.
- if an address does/has not 'associated' within X seconds, we
  re-resolve and start the cycle over again.
