A alternative is to insecurely delegate .local to the root servers
themselves and to request that recursive servers maintain their own
empty .local.  The roots will then get just DS queries for .local
when there is a validating recursive client behind the recursive
server that is leaking <foo>.local queries into the DNS.

The same solution also works for .onion.
Having a local copy of the root zone still works with this.

This stops leaks of <foo>.local to the root servers which qname
minimisation doesn't.  The extent of the leak is that you know
.local is in use when you have a validating recursive client.
