Yes, DNSViz provides useful tooling to document the issue when corresponding
with the operators in question, however it applies no public pressure to
address the issue in a timely manner.

I don't see why a list of poor DNS implementations should be limited to
malformed packets, and exclude well formed bad data.

While I've had luck working directly with some providers (with 
Transip, Forpsi, Binero, Neustar and a few others addressing reported
issues), some other providers ignored problem reports until the issue
was raised in a public forum.
