I think I'm missing the goal of these suggestions...

I don't know what authority the James project has to vote on this... someone
has to write code to create a DNS server, and then whoever does that could
decide what to do with that code.

Again I think I'm missing what your plans are.  If it's what I understand, I
don't see the need to further abstract the code before a second
implementation is written... it's really a pretty minor part of the system,
and I don't see a need to support multiple implementations.
