Note that there is an EDNS(0) extension for padding, so we do not need to invent a new record type for padding.

Wonder if we should bother padding pure PKEY replies, as those all will be one size, so maybe having that one (common) GNS-specific non-128-multiple would make sense.

The serialized record set is padded to the next power of 2.
There is not actually a padding record added as we do not (want to) support EDNS0 anyway.
