Hi Bert

I used the official IANA list as reference and listed all missing record types

RFC 4034 says:
   DNS Resource Record Types: [RFC2535] assigned types 24, 25, and 30 to
      the SIG, KEY, and NXT RRs, respectively.  [RFC3658] assigned DNS
      Resource Record Type 43 to DS.  [RFC3755] assigned types 46, 47,
      and 48 to the RRSIG, NSEC, and DNSKEY RRs, respectively.
      [RFC3755] also marked type 30 (NXT) as Obsolete and restricted use
      of types 24 (SIG) and 25 (KEY) to the "SIG(0)" transaction
      security protocol described in [RFC2931] and to the transaction
      KEY Resource Record described in [RFC2930].

... so it might not be completely unused.
