> But all of this could easily have been avoided: why are we _discovering_ DNS addresses in the first place? Simply host them on well known addresses and you can hardcode

So, when I take my laptop from Home to work, to the airport, to some 
random cyber cafe I should have to manually alter my DNS servers 
assuming I can find someone in the location who can tell me what they 
are ?? Or let me guess, I should hardcode  some public DNS servers which 
I can hopefully reach from where I am, hopefully is not down or having 
issues and hopefully I don't have poor latency to?

And here I always thought the D in DHCP stood for Dynamic.
