1) This is wrong: a resolver can use only TCP if it wishes.
2) What is your definition of "very"? A TLD like '.ro' (Romania) or
'.hk' (Hong-Kong) cannot even transfer its complete set of NS (I do
not mention the additional section, with the IP addresses) if the
query is at the maximum allowed size.

You are wrong.
