We can test with the pseudo-TLD "42.". Here is the configuration
required to use it with Unbound:

# .42  http://42registry.org/ 
domain-insecure: "42"
stub-zone:
   name: "42"
   stub-addr: 91.191.147.246
   stub-addr: 91.191.147.243

It is open to zone transfers so you can know what is inside. Tests
seem to indicate that Windows Vista has problems
<http://support.microsoft.com/kb/947228> as well as Google Chrome (I
cannot reproduce these ones).
