Open resolvers are far better then looking glasses to assess the state
of DNS, and we are campaigning against them.  You can't have it both
ways. 8-(

It is not as good as an open resolver but maybe IEN116 nameservers
(the old port 42 nameserver) could do too but maybe some windows boxes
would break. Originally the port 42 nameserver was left for dying but
with AXFR gone and open resolvers gone it might be a good idea to give
them a revival.
