Another use of a TXT record is to confirm that an e-mail message is sent by the domain address owner and from a trusted web server - this is the so-called SPF security, which helps prevent any electronic address set up under your domain to be forged and unauthorized people to send out junk mail making it appear like it was sent from your own mailbox. You could include any other info that you would like to be associated with your domain name in a TXT record as well.
