If everybody -or the majority- does this, yes, the load balancer will be 
fixed. But in this case everybody could resolve m.facebook.com, 
including google, opendns and others. Unbound couldn't.
Who's the incompetent? - asks the customer...
And unbound will resolve m.facebook.com. Or unbound will be changed to 
bind/google/opendns/you name it, because they work in real world scenarios.

Of course you are right, but the world works the opposite way. :(
