Um, why? Gregory's talk introduces it as a more reliable way of
establishing if a browser is using Tor. Isn't that what the DNSEL already
to sites as a method of corroborating DNSEL results?
I agree the discovery of an unintended effect is a good reason for removing
a feature temporarily, just in case, but would it not be useful to
reinstate it as '.isusingtor' and allow remote sites to make use of it?
