Again, if we can change the DNS protocol, then it's easy to solve.

Securing host->recursive name server is, at the moment, not an issue - each host is a small target, and often has little bandwidth available.  Furthermore, stopping IP spoofing of one's own hosts within one's networks is, well, not trivial, but not hugely difficult either.
