Of course, since users shouldn't be using off-net name servers
anyway, this isn't really a problem! :)

You're joking, right?  Should they also use only the telco-approved
search engine, via the telco-hosted portal?

Far too many (perhaps not Patrick) in this thread are not joking. Laughter
gets stuck in my throat, as we say in Sweden. Having proper Internet
access is more and more a privilege for the Internet gentry that are
clued and able to pay for a box in a colo or similar.

The unwashed masses are left with "broadband" We can't call it "Internet"
because there are a few raving graybeards that claim they invented it
and intended it to be two-way instead of stuffing .flv down peoples
facebook-viewing devices while also supplanting cable TV with demand 
streaming.

What percentage of the SOHO NAT boxes actually are full-service
resolvers? I was under the impression that most were mere forwarders; just
pushing queries on toward the DHCP'd full service resolvers of the ISP.
