Which "every" home LAN has two resolvers, none of them being 
authoritative? Mine certainly doesn't.

Define "no reply". There's more than one kind of non-reply here. If the 
no-reply you're talking about is actually a "doesn't exist" reply, then 
Windows is perfectly correct not to ask anybody else for a second 
opinion. The net is flooded with stupid (if not to say "terminally 
brain-dead") DNS queries as it is, ask any DNS provider; no need to add 
even more of these.

Please elucidate why you can't use a fixed prefix like ".home" or ".lan" 
for these. Cf. RFC 2606.
