 I'd make it opt-out. I mean, literally anyone can point an A record to your domain anyway, so if you are concerned about that make it so that your webserver responds only to adresses you actually want it respond to. A server's IP adress is not a secret thing and can't be a secret thing. What's the harm in making it opt-out? Is there even anyone who would wish to be resolvable only through our DNS servers? It doesn't make much sense.

What about some setting in the dns? Just an idea but would make it a little

TXT record indicating opt-out. "private=yes" might be a good string?
Rethinking this, what about making it opt-in? That way people who are
interested can do it and those not, don't have to actively think about
it and get caught out.

@	TXT	"linkme"

Something like the above could work? No need for an A record, just a TXT
record for link.TLD. The presence of such a thing means add it to the
link DNS zone. This is a win-win as it means only active domains are
listed on our ICANN facing page.
