Implementing IETF Draft on DNS use in Kerberos

I think in the MIT Kerberos version krb5-1.2.5 the implementation of the draft is only for looking up the KDC server location and the hostname/domain name to Kerberos realm mapping. 

But I think the implementation for admin_server and the kpasswd_server is not there.
