Of course, nobody supports the "Evil bit" today, so some change would be
necessary one way or the other to deal with this.  One wonders whether
Verizon's behavior is enough to cause Microsoft to turn on a caching

requests from OTHER than caching resolvers.

Cough.  So, how much is that NXDOMAIN worth to you?
