I suspect this would be some pitch for end-user product; within the circle
of companies that really value distributed/available DNS they're the only
player with the sort of setup they have.  But like most companies in that
position, there's only a limited number of big fish to catch, and there's
money to be made attracting the small fry with their big
system/claims/price when something much simpler will likely work as well
for them 99.999999% of the time.
