The research justification for a RIR to do this seems a little thin.
Surely we, as a community already know about what happens when a company
operates a public resolver. How will yet another one will tell us more?

A more interesting question might be, what happens when we let multiple
organisations anycast a well-known public resolver address? There are
reasons why it might be a bad idea, but at least it’s slightly novel.
