Section 6 says:
1. Call getaddinfo(), which returns a list of IP addresses sorted by the host's address preference policy.
It should say:
1. Call getaddrinfo(), which returns a list of IP addresses sorted by the host's address preference policy.
The r appears to be missing from the getaddrinfo() call. This may vary by language but C, POSIX and Perl seem to expect the r. I would think this is a trivial change, and would fall into the category of "Hold for Document Update".

Section 1 says:
However, this does not scale well (to the number of DNS servers worldwide or the number of content providers worldwide) and does react to intermittent network path outages.
It should say:
However, this does not scale well (to the number of DNS servers worldwide or the number of content providers worldwide) and does not react to intermittent network path outages.
The introduction makes a case against a whitelist of DNS servers because it does not scale well and is not flexible.
DNS server whitelists indeed to not react to intermittent network outages, so the only logical sentence to form is to state that they do not.
The "not" has been omitted, reversing the logical meaning of the sentence.
