Sorry for the delayed question, but with respect to this bullet:

1) Do you have evidence that DOH is faster than DOT, since speed was one
of your goals?

2) What other reasons are you considering when doing DOH instead of DOT
to protect privacy.  Specifically, you're preferring DOH but your stated
goals are "Stronger privacy and security." and "Hopefully, some
performance wins.", without providing rational for each of the potential
solutions.  DNS plain clearly doesn't meet the first, but likely does
the second.  But you fail to provide a goal that distinguishes why you'd
prefer DOT vs DOH to meet both these goals.
