Automatic Registry Discovery by DNS

I’d like to be able to automatically discover the registry by means of a DNS service record. Instead of going to every Netdata instance and adding:

[registry]
    enabled = no
    registry to announce = http://stats.internal.domain.tld:19999

I would create the following record for my domain internal.domain.tld

_netdata-registry._tcp.internal.domain.tld.       3600    IN      SRV     5 0 19999 stats.internal.domain.tld.

I think that this is not possible. Pinging @ilyam8 in case he has more info, since Registry is an old feature that is used increasingly less (partly replaced by Netdata Cloud).

Have you tried automating the configuration using Ansible, Chef, etc?
