Yeah, Tim Hockin and I still regret not designing the DNS name search process in Kube better. If we had, we would have avoided the need for 5 and could have kept 90% of the usability win of “name.namespace.svc” and “name” being resolvable to services without having to go to 5. And now we can’t change it by default without breaking existing apps.

Forwards compatibility is painful.

Pardon my lack of Kubernetes knowledge, but any regrets supporting the hierarchical lookup where they don't have to qualify their dns requests (and maybe could have used some other way to find their "same namespace")?
