If by "platform" you mean a remote managed service for recursive DNS, no one I know in the DNS business ever tried to sell that (although arguably the ISPs generally supply something similar free to every customer), that doesn't necessarily negate their experience. Most of those I know try to deploy recursive services as close as possible to the client, avoiding where possible alternative views of the DNS, and forwarding. Perhaps time to ask Brad, Paul and Cricket what they think, and have answers to their comments. I commend your enterprise, but have you considered trying to sell the "data feed" via firewall channels, where the restrictions could be applied more specifically than via a different view of the DNS. With automated responses to "bad things", it is usually best to minimise the scope of the change. Similarly typo correction makes sense for URLs, but not for most other uses of the DNS (hence the proviso you make to switch it off if you use RBL, although I'd say switch it off for all email servers less you start correcting spambot crud, our email servers make a DNS check on the senders domain, that doesn't want correcting either), so the answer is probably browser plug-in (although most browsers already try to guess what you meant to some extent).
