Either opt-in or opt-out, the use of a TXT record would certainly make it easy to automate the procedure.  The advantage of using this for opt-in is that by specifically listing the domain and subdomain you want included, it reduces the chance that a desired subdomain is missed during the record scrape.

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.

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.
