correct me if i'm wrong, but i think you might be confusing two
proposals here. XQID and the EDNS PING proposal. XQID appends entropy to
the actual query name, and shouldn't be downgradeable by leaving out
something (because then the answer wouldn't be the same as the query).

Using EDNS PING is 'cleaner' (it doesn't muck with the query), but would
need something like you ask for here.
