I can help, just for this use case: "When you (or I) do want filtering".

The following applies when, a) someone is away from their own local resolver (or doesn't have one) and, b) *does* have a need for filtering...

.. And, c) when the person is located *outside* of the US/Wesrern Europe.

OpenDNS's anycast network does seem to have one node in Johannesburg now, but apart from that there is no coverage elsewhere in Africa (West, North, etc), and also none in Latin American region, the Caribbean or the Middle East.

For now, for the locations I mostly frequent, quad9 has way better coverage.
