Could there not be an option inside of NM that enables and disables
DNS caching (or even on the right click menu for example, where we can
easily disable networks on our laptops.) Maybe it could even be
expanded to do except so you can disable the caching per interface

I actually like that idea, I wish I had time to look into helping
implement something like this.
