Gotcha. Our goals differ then.

My point is that DNS-over-TCP/HTTP is viable at Internet scale with
network latency characteristics similar to UDP with security
characteristics of TCP.

The cost is of course server state, but my earlier post is trying to
suggest that managing large amounts of TCP server state is tractable
for the traffic profile of a large auth server.
