I'm wondering about the mapping between Unbound and the future RFC 
draft-ietf-dnsop-serve-stale. If I read correctly the draft, the
resolver can send expired (stale) data only if the authoritative name
servers are not reachable. If so, serve-expired does not have the
proper behaviour. Is

serve-expired-ttl-reset: yes
serve-expired-ttl: 86400

more compliant with the future RFC? (I'm not sure it is possible to be
100% compliant with Unbound.)
