Summary: Thank you for this very interesting and well written document. 
This draft is ready for publication as an Informational RFC but I do 
have a few minor comments you may wish to consider.


* General

Not really sure if it belongs in this document, but I personally think 
that DNScrypt is probably worth at least a passing mention as it 
specifically deals with encryption of DNS requests.

* Section 2.1

In this text below it is unclear what value the parenthesized text adds. 
Suggest removing this text or provide examples of the "more dubious reasons"

" The zone transfer QTYPE [RFC5936] is often blocked or restricted to 
authenticated/authorized access to enforce this difference (and maybe 
for other, more dubious reasons)."

* Section 8.3

Why is there a separate class of references for URI? Shouldn't this be 
folded into either Normative or Informative? To be more specific, what 
exactly is the difference between the Google Public DNS Privacy 
reference in the URI subsection and the other Wikipedia references in 8.2.
