The email mentioning this is at 
by Federico Lucifredi (//flucifredi at acm.org).  That was in December 
2008.  There was an email in July 2011 asking about this 
which did not get anywhere.  I have emailed Federico tonight about his 
patches to Avahi, so maybe(!) these can finally be published and integrated.

I should mention at this point (although it's not ideal) that various 
workarounds exist.  For example, there is a Ruby D-Bus daemon to do 
wide-area updates at <https://github.com/Roguelazer/wamupd/>, and 
Federico Lucifredi has a Perl script at 
<http://primates.ximian.com/~flucifredi/mybook/dns-update.html> for 
one-off registration.  If one of these (or a similar script) were 
installed by default in Linux distributions, that might be enough for 
desktop machines.
