Well there's a question.  Is there any DNS software that will keeps adding 
new sections to a truncated answer, e.g., a partial authority section but 
it has some additional records anyway.  Seems unlikely but I honestly 
don't know.

In any event this whols plan still seems way overcomplicated.  In my 
simple world, you can tell that an answer is a referral because it has an 
empty answer section and an non-empty authority section.  A useful 
referral has some NS records in the authority section.

Let's see what other people think.
