I think it's OK to refer to it as "whitelisting". I think it is confusing
to refer to it as "DNS whitelisting". "Resolver whitelist" is better (it's
a whitelist of resolvers) or perhaps "IPv6 whitelisting" (what members of
the list are cleared to use) if you need a short phrase.

Speaking of confusing, the first sentence of the abstract and introduction
in the current revision of the draft is an abomination that should be
taken out and shot.
