[dns-operations] DNSviz and G-root: EDNS issue?

DNSviz currently always flags the root with a warning "./DNSKEY (alg
8, id 14748): No response was received until the UDP payload size was
decreased, indicating that the server might be attempting to send a
payload that exceeds the path maximum transmission unit (PMTU)
size. (, UDP_-_EDNS0_4096_D_KN)".

Testing G-root/ with the RIPE Atlas probes, bit DO and
bufsize=4096 shows no evidence of a problem (and the answer is well
below 4096 bytes). It seems it affects only the path between G-root
and DNSviz.

Any idea?
