While I appreciate Jason's strict DNS requirement, for the last 2.5 years our project has implemented a trivial patch [1] to ignore endpoint DNS failure.  On a DNS failure, essentially ignoring the (optional) Endpoint= dns-hostname peer entry.

This has worked well for our use case.  WireGuard always starts.
