As John Maynard Keynes once said, "in the long run, we're all dead".

But somewhere between now and then, I'd be happy to oblige all of these 
folks that want to "get rid of UDP" for DNS, as long as they pay for the 
required server and network-infrastructure upgrades necessary to 
maintain the same service levels with TCP as we currently have with UDP.
