I can run some of the tests tomorrow. Not sure what you mean by "let the wireless roam"?

Great, but we should be testing wireless roaming keeping the DNS yes?
Ideally test with an ethernet cable attached as well.
Set the metric of the wireless interface lower than the wired interface in dhcpcd.conf
`resolvconf -i` should list the wireless over the ethernet
Let the wireless roam and they should swap.
dhcpcd will do the same as well without resolvconf, but you would need to ensure both interfaces used a different nameserver and then inspect /etc/resolv.conf to ensure they swapped.
Let the wireless connect and they should swap again.
Let me know how it works out.
