Hooray for purism. But I don't think that is possible. You could use, which at least is unequivocally no in use, but then using an 
explicit example IP 'for real' isn't very pure, either.

Does anything speak against letting dnsdist handle normal DNS traffic as 
well as DoT? The only difference, configuration-wise, would be changing 
pdns to only bind to localhost, and you'd get dnsdist caching/rate 
limiting/whatever into the bargain.
