I am bedding in a system to produce daily updates including the raw data. I will hold back the unique IPs seen as querier and queried, for obvious reasons.

I will mail the list when I have graphs and data available.

The question has however come up before and I think one or two root operators in the past have said they'd like this traffic to be off-loaded.

I'd be delighted to +1 such a document William, as soon as you post to the dnsops list for WG adoption!
