I'm not sure if there can be *one* BCP way.  I suspect it would even be 
harmful if all vendors aimed for the same approach here, as for rarer 
(combinations of) events I see lack of diversity as additional risk.  
(be it on scale of one resolver provider or wider internet)  I suppose 
it would be possible to collect ideas from whoever wanted to contribute 
them, in some way, or at least collect "common problems" that need to be 
addressed - without prescribing too much how to solve them.
