I don't think anyone argues that 512+ octet replies don't occur.
They have occured for as long as the DNS has existed.  Even RFC
1123 said you SHOULD handle them.

Unfortunately there are SOHO router vendors (yes I'm talking about
you Netgear) that have shipped products that don't even listen on
DNS/TCP yet advertise themselves as recursive DNS servers and don't
have fixed images that can be installed (yes the box is field
upgradable and yes I have looked for updated images).
