Yep, they’ve been trying to put something together in this space for several years.  Sounds like it may be close now.

I can’t say I envy them their task, as it will be very difficult for them to differentiate in that space, since they don’t have OpenDNS’s many years of experience and fine-tuning and security services, nor Google’s brand-recognition.  Verisign have had a reasonably good commercial offering in this space for years, and hardly anyone’s heard of it, for instance.  I believe even Neustar does.  And they’re all DNS specialists, rather than web-content specialists.
