I know. Still using a DNS SRV record is a significant problem, because of the 
number of webmail users and I'd rather have a better solution.
As you've written that the lookup is optional, a rudimentary step forward 
would be to declare the lookup option. This way providers know that they'll 
be excluded from some clients if they rely on the SRV record "hack".
