"Curious here: how will all of this work with captive portals?

i.e. when I connect to the 'free' wifi network on the subway, a captive portal opens which I have to click an 'I agree' button."

Perhaps some of them will break.

If the user is first redirected to a web page with only an IP address - the captive portal should work.

At least Firefox can be configured to use traditional DNS as a fallback if DoH queries fail. (network.trr.mode=2) So it still should work.
