over an abundance of abbreviations, particular in documents. In this
case, why not "classic DNS" or "traditional DNS"? Likewise, "encrypted
DNS" instead of DoTH.

I agree with "encrypted DNS" because that makes the meaning (DoH or DoT or
X : X is some new way to encrypt DNS) clear when it is intended

Like DNSCrypt with UDP transport?

Or like an apex TXT record that contains a one-time token to authenticate a
zone to a service?

I spent some time this week at the Africa DNS Forum in Botswana promoting
the idea that the concept of "DNS Security" is usefully more broad than
just DNSSEC. Perhaps we need a corresponding effort to broaden "DNS
Encryption" beyond DoH and DoT?
