Although you mention the DNS cookies proposal
(draft-eastlake-dnsext-cookies), you offer no rationale of why your
solution is "better". Unlike draft-reid-dnsext-aleatoric, which
follows a different path, EDNS ping seems so close of the cookies that
one can wonder why there are two proposals.

At first reading, the differences seem to be:

- EDNS ping may be simpler to implement

- the draft on EDNS ping is quite... drafty and, for instance, does
not address downgrade attacks (compare with the use of "soft state"
in cookies)
