The obvious is that the usual DNS spoofing hacks often only have a
few milliseconds for you to stick in a bogus packet before the real DNS
answers - here you have entire seconds to play with.

Sure, you do. However, the intersection between the set of protocols

I have SSH configured with StrictHostKeyChecking, so I see no
