That would kill all cacheability of DNS.
Split tunnel VPNs do somewhat break the DNS GSLB model, but I don't think that's
as bad as anti-DNS GSLB people claim it is. If you were on a full- tunnel VPN, you
would expect to be sent to nocal, right?
This could also be fixed in split tunnel VPNs with a local DNS proxy that only used
the DNS cache on the other side of the VPN for the "internal" domains, and your ISP's
DNS cache for everything else. That proxy could even be built into your VPN client.
With wide open recursive nameservers getting such bad press lately, I would expect
to see client <-> caching nameserver proximity getting a lot closer.
