I'm fairly certain that won't help. Their caches (when you're opted
in) return an A record for anything that would otherwise return
NXDOMAIN, not just anything.eastlink.ca.

I've opted out and can't find a way to opt back in (surprising) to
test. Running dig against thisdoesnotexist.eastlink.ca returns
NXDOMAIN as I would expect.
