That seems to be the median so far.

In various discussions on different DNS-related topics, some people have said that "obviously" everyone should have a resolver at X, where X had wildly different values. I thought it would be useful to create a "typical" use case and see if X converged in a community such as this.

It didn't. That's a useful data point for people creating other protocols who have to listen to commenters who say where resolvers need to be.
