true -- it wouldn't have been.  running a server that's in the root delegation
is a bit different.  i'm not saying that it takes some kind of arcane secret
handshake -- but it does rather seem to me that elise's team has their hands
full.  if i hear otherwise from elise herself, then i will suggest to the IANA
that RSs at XPs be given priority for new root servers.
