Of course I personally think that the reason why there are DNS cache's
that don't respect TTL is caused by people not using TTL appropriately
in the past. If you correctly update the TTL (unchanging == large
value, ephemeral == low value), then _most_ people will just perceive
things to Just Work(TM). The remainder of the 'Net will complain to
their system administrators, who /just might/ replace their broken
caches with correctly working DNS caches...
