As everyone pointed out, I was wrong about plain client resolvers. My
understanding of the tightening of the rules is that resolving servers
-- which could end up with a poisoned cache -- now apply strict rules
to what they accept in the additional section.

But it may well be that things have been tightened further and clients
completely ignore it. I got the "ignore unrelated / non authoritative
entries" memo, maybe there's been an "ignore everything" one.
