It seems that the better Chinese DNS providers have this feature, for example DNSPod.

Sweet. That cuts down not just on the owner attribute, but on the multiple file resources altogether. Can this also be made to work with files that are not static, but use content => Template( somehow (some files in that module are templates)?

Will it do anything to files that are already in that directory (but not in the module)?

You may have to run your own DNS server for this, though. It seems that providers don't usually have this feature, see e.g. this thread on Hover: help.hover.com/entries/21455915

Can you also check and compare ping/traceroute response times from your two locations to both IPs? Does it get noticeably slower when you contact the "wrong" IP?
