I'd like evidence that these users actually exist before worrying
about anything on 'their' behalf.  Considering how broken their
Internet experience would be, I'm highly skeptical.

(I might count China's UDP DNS traffic filtering, but I'm sure the
Great Firewall sysadmins would either block or similarly filter TCP
DNS traffic were its use to become prevalent as a workaround, so it
seems moot.)
