For those who have not yet seen this:

They will 'correct' your spelling mistakes for you.

I think the openDNS approach is far different from the Verisign sitefinder debacle if only for the important reason that using openDNS is voluntary and using sitefinder wasn't.

Also, sitefinder created a wildcard DNS record where none existed before, breaking all kinds of applications in the process, openDNS doesn't do this.

So at the end of the day, people are FREE to decide what resolvers to use and whoever comes along to offer their idea of "value adds" can go right ahead without borking the internet.

Personally I think openDNS is an idea whose time has come and that Dave Ulevitch and is crew are going to hit one out of the ballpark with this.
