ok, you got me on that one.  how about this?

    GET http://x.gtld-servers.net/query.cgi HTTP/1.1
    Class: IN
    Type: A

in other words i agree that this should be cacheable ("duh!") but i don't
want the URI to include the query terms unless the URI really is universal
and does not include the server name, so it would be dns:// rather than
https:// which is precisely what i think can't develop in this market.
