While I won't be there DNS server protocol compliance (or the lack
there of) for servers being delegated to would be a useful discussion
topic.  Only ~60% of servers that nominally support EDNS pass EDNS
compliance checks.  The others either return a incorrect response
or don't respond at all.

Recursive servers are then forced to work around this brokeness to
be able to resolve queries and in some cases the brokeness results
in complete failure to get a answer.

There needs to be check and balances in the system and they were
there when the DNS was originally developed (RFC 1033 COMPLAINTS).
These seem to have been thrown out the window for the sake of the
almighty dollar and they need to be restored.
