That would be the straight-forward and in some ways the simplest
way to deal with it.

An alternative method could be that you could assign one or two
"service" addresses and configure them on your loopback interface
as aliases, arrange routing so that those addresses are routed to
your host, and have unbound and nsd listen on different service
