You don't want to do this with DNS. Trust me. There are far too many seriously screwed up nameservers out there -- including many TLD nameservers, and even some mildly mis-configured root nameservers.

Until such time as these issues get addressed (either DNS software gets more idiot-resistant, or we have DNSSEC and things like cache pollution are basically impossible), you want to find other ways to handle these sorts of things.
