If that's the heart of the issue, then I remain unconvinced
that there is any real issue;-)

IOW, I'm still none the wiser as to what GDPR issue is
supposed to exist here.

Resolving DNS names is needed for a browser.

Sure. But they are allowed innovate.

I don't believe the above is a good argument. First, "requiring
the user" isn't what's at issue, the situation of interest is
where DoH is on by default (which is not the current scenario).
Second, I've no idea what T&C's have to do with this - if there
is a GDPR issue, then T&C's that nobody reads can't avoid that.
