Wide area bonjour should be interesting, though doesn't it rely on multicast being reliably passed through all the ISPs and carrier networks?

No, my understanding is that for wide areas you tell your local machine, via a Bonjour control panel you can download where there is a DNS server to use to look up services.

Multicast is only used on the local sub-net.
