This is equivalent to providing a default search engine in Firefox or
Chromium.  If the software required the use of these external services
in order to provide basic functionality, then you might have an argument
that the software should go into contrib.  But that is not the case.
Especially for this bug report, there are many options, packaged by
Debian, for running your own DNS server.  Those will be selected by
default if you set up your network correctly.  So I am not seeing the
problem here.
