No - that's pretty much the only situation where you have a technical 
requirement to hardcode IP address, and there's basically no way of getting 
around it.

Besides, it's completely different to having a requirement that all locally 
connected machines should by default send all of their DNS requests to a 
specific address.  You're talking about a situation which affects only DNS 
resolvers.  I'm talking about something which affects all end-user nodes in 
the world.  i.e. much messier problem on a completely different scale.
