AENS as DNS when DNS can't be relied on

I think AENS, if extended properly, could be used as a good supplement to DNS for websites liable to being censored. The JS SDK could simply look something up and perhaps return the IP the browser should redirect itself to.

This is obviously a very publicly visible use case and that is no accident. We need immediately useful, tangible use cases in order to spur interest and adoption. Plus, it is trivial to extend AENS to do this.

There is already and it just boggles me how we have a working system already but haven’t used it to similar effect to get publicity.

What do you guys think?

Sounds like a good idea and a very straightforward use case.
