It's very important for DNS since there are a fairly large number of
misbehaving applications that don't stop querying until they get some
kind of answer.

And speaking of DNS, while I think that improving nscd is a good goal I
wonder how much use it will be in the world to come when DNSSEC becomes
more important ...
