No, I guess "peering" wasn't the correct word to use. The "proper" way
access to .bit is through using a peer-to-peer application that
downloads the data about every current .bit domain (1.80 GB) locally,
it would be difficult and pointless to include OpenNIC support in

OK, that's fine. I set up a server with BIND + namecoind and
everything works fine. We can discuss the best way of implementing
Namecoin support depending on the result of the vote.
