I recently circulated an individual draft
the DNSOP list that discusses how UDP options could be used to send large
DNS responses without UDP fragmentation. The one comment that came back was
not favorable, arguing that it would increase the surface for reflection
attacks, which TCP (and QUIC) would not. See
https://mailarchive.ietf.org/arch/msg/dnsop/EhUq8tZF8Qm-iZk4eUAnjsCGXUg/ and
subsequent messages in the thread.

As for https://datatracker.ietf.org/doc/html/draft-hinden-v6ops-dns, it
seems to cover much of the same territory as
which has been submitted for publication. My sense is that getting the
latter document published would be a better path forward for the IETF
community than a new draft.
