I presume (hope) the "yes" applies rate limiting? Blocking non-UDP DNS is a bad idea. As RFC 5966 states: "... it should be noted that failure to support TCP (or the blocking of DNS over TCP at the network layer) may result in resolution failure and/or application-level timeouts."

How do you know if a source address is an anycast address?

Why would you want to block fragmented packets?
