Where's the logic in this?

Ok, so your ISP/government/hacker can't see the address you're resolving. So what? They only have see what TCP/UDP connections you make and to what port to know what sites you're accessing anyway so unless you're using a VPN you're hosed as far as site visiting privacy is concerned.

This is a solution looking for a problem unless the problem is actually the internet giants trying to reduce ISPs down even further to nothing more than dumb pipes so they can ultimately grab their business.
