Well, BIND made the change a while ago ...
1880. [func] The lame cache is now done on a <qname,qclass,qtype>
basis as some servers only appear to be lame for
certain query types. [RT #14916]
in spite of being a widely used resolver implementation. Now, how should
Unbound choose between following the spec(*) or the leading implementation?
(*) I'm also not sure that the specs actually encourage, even less dictate,
a lameness memory. From the perspective of a name server operator who
occasionally receives lame delegations, I'd of course appreciate a less
exhaustive resolver behaviour.
