So perhaps Telepathy-Salut should be told to contact its known nodes
regularly, and prune stale entries?

As they state, mDNS & DNS-SD are in use in fairly large networks with
lots of nodes, so they have to be rather careful in not being too

In our application of Telepathy/Salut, which in turn (mis?)uses
mDNS/DNS-SD, we *know* that it only works passably with a small number
of nodes, so we are prepared to make it a bit chattier. It's only a
shade more of chatty.
