Granted that I have not read RFC-5006 yet...a silly thought popped into 
my head.

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 ;) to read 5006.
