Can you please explain why your servers are returning NOTIMP
for unknown types outside of the range reserved for meta types (128-255)?

The RFC compliant rcode is NOERROR for names that exist and NXDOMAIN for
names that do not exist.  See RFC3597.  

% dig @ns1.google.com google.com type1001 

; <<>> DiG 9.15.4+hotspot+add-prefetch+marka <<>> @ns1.google.com google.com type1001

All this does is make it harder to deploy new DNS data types.  Is
that Google’s intention?
