Originally reported in ippsample project:

https://github.com/istopwg/ippsample/issues/1

It would be useful to add support for querying for the presence of published LOC records and filtering results based on proximity based on data from LOC records.

IPP Everywhere (5100.14) requires Printers to publish LOC records, but we are currently lacking a tool that would allow the PWG IPP Everywhere Self Certification test suite to validate whether the device has published a LOC record for its IPP services.

It appears that both mDNSResponder and Avahi have APIs to query arbitrary DNS record types, so it may be possible to get this information. Will need to do some testing to see how existing printers respond to such queries...

Also, we'll need to update ippserver to publish LOC records... :)
