Granted that I have not read RFC-5006 yet...a silly thought popped into
Perhaps in some cases, a client without an explicitly defined DNS
resolver address sends along DNS names up to it's default gateway in the
same manner that it would send an off-link destined packet. If the
router were also a DNS resolver, it could translate the name on the fly ;)
...off to read 5006.
