musl has had a good track record catching bugs in dns
implementations and in dns setups, i don't think this
should be mitigated, it's good to know that cloudflare
has a broken dns server, or that kubernetes had dns
setup bugs, these are real reliability and performance
issues affecting all systems not just musl.
