Something like this would be the minimum, need to be fairly easy to
replicate and be in a machine readable format (DNS-in-JSON maybe?).

This is a cool idea, certainly make sure that something like this would
be possible but I think we need to put it off to sometime in the future.

This is a noble idea but I doubt that the really broken software will
even be made public to be able to run against the set of data. Maybe
include meta information for the DNS violation about where it was found,
if there is public available services etc so it could be rechecked if
it's still there.
