You don't want to do this with DNS. Trust me. There are far too

So explain how this is superior to DNS entr(y|ies) stating who
your peers and upstreams are. And there's nothing to say that
one could not specify allowed filters in DNS, too.
Until such time as these issues get addressed (either DNS
software gets more idiot-resistant, or we have DNSSEC and things like
cache pollution are basically impossible), you want to find other
ways to handle these sorts of things.
