this is basically like having NS records for P2P identities.
so, one way of resolving is via petnames {bacon}.{friend}.{your_contacts}
and the other is via what bacon's NS is set as:
bacon's trusted friends:
A -> answer 1.1.1.1
B -> answer 1.1.1.1
C -> answer 1.1.1.1

a namespace you can't squat:
petnames.

what does it take to make a special use domain name?
like if .petname became reserved for petname systems?
{friend}.{friend}.{friend}.{protocol}.petname
where {protocol} is picked up by a daemon registered to open that kind of URI, and handles resolving (so it's not just my implementation of petnames)
for example:
alice.peter.david.coolprotocol.petname
david is in my contact as "david: 1.1.1.1"
peter is in david's contacts as "1.2.3.4" (even though I call peter's record "phil")
alice is in peter's record as "8.8.8.8" (even though me and david have alice's that are "2.2.2.2")
