If Google was being sensible the servers would just return the
information along with the answer. They all support EDNS.
e.g. dig +nsid @188.8.131.52
This is the type of thing the NSID (RFC 5001) was designed to do.
It just requires Google to configure the servers to return a id.
You would then back something like this. In this case the nsid is
the hostname but it can be anything you like it to be. A value
that makes sense to most people or a value that only make sense
to a Google.
