[tdwg-content] LSID Resolution Service using DDDS/DNS

I'm reading the LSID spec and there are some things that are some things 
that are a little cloudy to me.

The spec says that the client should query the DNS for NAPTR records for 
the domain name "lsid.urn.arpa", but it seems that the URN NID part 
"lsid" has not been established at IANA (lsid.urn.arpa is unresolvable) 
? Why ?
I wondered if it's enough to query the DNS of the "authority 
identification" part of the LSID (domain name) for a _lsid._tcp SRV 
record and assume that this entry is a valid resolution service for the 
given LSID ? If not, what's the proper way to find a resolution service 
for, let's say, "urn:lsid:blah.my.domain:foo:12345" ?

Thank you
