Description (last modified by irl)

onionoo does DNS lookups for some fields, please use a DNSSEC validating resolver.

I don't think it is necessary to add new fields but lets
add it to the description of the _host_names fields

Edit: We already do this, but we still should add some text to the spec.

We actually already do this. (:

The hosts have a local unbound stub resolver installed and this is used by Onionoo when performing lookups.

I've prepared a small patch in my task/26901 branch. I'm not sure if we should also call attention to this clarification or not in the changelog or with a change message after "Added on..". We're not changing the behaviour of the field.
