Oops ... it would look more like this:

_http._tcp.*.com IN SRV ...

in other words, for every domain, synthesize a record

A client asking for the HTTP SRV record for a non-existant domain would get sitefinder; a client asking for the A would get NXDOMAIN.

] *.NET.

For those of you running dnscache... this is the new and improved patch which supports blackholing multiple IPs ... apparently, other TLDs are now taking the cue from verisign (sigh):
