Because shutting down outside access to recursers sucks in many ways.
For a list titled "dns-operations," I am taken aback a bit because it
sounds like nobody here ever has to do the dirty tech work of finding
out why some name is resolving (funny, slow, wrong, not at all, etc),
and having access to query the recursers in question is really helpful.
