Hi, I would like to do some addition as well.

Section 2.3. System configuration [TORRC]

- Do we really need a priority list?
- Should we just make a priority based on the ordering?

Section 2.3.1. Tor name resolution logic

- Should tor check the <tld> based on regex?
- How should it reponds when <tld> is .a.b?
- Can it accept '*' (without dot) or '.on*' as <tld>?

And about the caching part? Should it be in the spec?

In reply to nickm:

- Maybe we can considering using sockets instead of TCP?
