Instauring a registry is a perfect way to prepare a robbery onto the
enslaved masses. Prepare your checks ! Even if someone promises you
whatever freedom now, the capitalist temptation of making money on
any central authority is just impossible to resist in the long term.
No way I'm I going to accept the idea of coupling parsing of XML resources

XML does not even require DNS resolving unless one want to access remote
resources (and in general you try to avoid that when deploying).
