pretty easy to believe that quic would be helpful right? especially if
you were interested in:
  1) keeping resource utilization down/same on dns servers
  2) rtt and latency impacts of extra rtt on upper layer protocols
  3) the Xmillions of embedded devices that end users rely upon for
dns in their homes

seems totally feasible.
