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.
