So what if I want to assign different people to different resolvers by 
policy?  What if I want to use non-/64 subnets with a resolver on each 
one?  What if I round-robin amongst more or less resolvers than there 
are well-known addresses assigned to?  What if, in 1/2/5/10/20/50 years, 
we need to do things differently?  Why intentionally burden a protocol 
with something that screams "I am going to be a depreciated legacy 
problem someday!"
