Right. Elsewhere in this thread, somebody discussed ugly patches to keep
the packet size under 512.  I dread to think how many different ways of
"protecting" DNS are deployed that will break EDNS, and just haven't been
noticed because there's little enough *actual* EDNS breakage that it's down
in the noise of *other* "random voodoo" breakage at those sites.

I actually meant "which 800 pound gorilla is going to try this first and
find all the bustifications", but your answer is good too.. :)
