we know that the recursor sets RA bit in the

I wonder if the clients care about the bit and when.
IANA's TLD delegation looks for it as well as
other debugging and checking scripts.
see item 2.11.2.
It's fairly important when debugging DNS
operations. I can say that from experience.
Other than checking for it as part of DNS
management, I don't know that it plays any other
role. I doubt stubs look at the flags.
