I think there are two separate things here.

First there are several implementations of a DNS over HTTP protocol.
These range from just using DNS over port 80/443 to people running REST
services using JSON APIs. I wonder if it makes sense to try to capture
all the different degrees of freedom in this kind of service and if not
make a standard, at least document the trade-offs?

Second there is the idea of making DNS over HTTP as a resource
available to users. I think this is possibly quite interesting, but
wonder what the general approach would be? Perhaps something like
POOL.NTP.ORG? Maybe also include some rate-limiting rules to prevent
these from becoming abusive open resolvers?
