Something I think that's slightly forgotten about DNS is that yes, we have a centralized form of it that we use every day. We can also encourage decentralized forms of it (without web3, dear God) in conjunction to the federated ones we use every day. Granted, companies tend to use this for internal development environments and I use nss to give my local Docker containers resolvable host names. If we had a way to specify what resolvers for DNS we could use in a computer as simply as we can set up WiFi, we could see a way for people to encourage “private” DNS with a one-click setup. Obviously, a good desktop environment would allow for an option to 'reset' this in the event the upstream resolver fails.
