DNS related-ideas

Does Tor currently use DNSSEC when looking up nodes? This would eliminate need for a special directory of nodes and keys as DNSSEC is a PKI structure. We could also do something like pool.ntp.org does to get random nodes. A lookup for pool.tor.eff.org would return the DNS data of a random node, simplifying node lookup and reduce memory requirements for clients.
