I work for a big French ISP and I manage the DNS architecture (based on Linux+Bind); Golog proposed to our society the DNS redirect service (redirect all the not existant domains according to marketing criteria).
Even if our marketing team would like to join this solution, our technical team opposes hardly to such a not-standard implementation of the DNS.
Can you suggest me any objective reason in order to invalidate this proposal?

This is a network autonomy issue. What occurs inside the provider
edge related to routing and applications is the responsibility of
the provider and they have the right to modify answers or routes
in their networks, even if they are not "theirs".

There is some "holy grail" you should consider, like making sure that is, the legitimate IP/trademark holder.

The questions to ask yourself as an organization are something
like this:

a) is there enough revenue here to consider?

b) is someone else going to capture revenue between my customer
and myself if I don't?

c) will this break my network or the networks of others?

If you can answer the first two yes, the third is worth
trying to make "no".
