While not a network operator, I think it would be most prudent to consider
and discuss (among those who ARE netops) what do to if, say, the root
server were suddenly comletely unaccessible for several days/permanently
for *whatever* reason.  

Does anyone know if NSI even has an off-site mirror running?  Or are all
the eggs in one basket?

What's going to happen to the ISPs if suddenly everyone of their client's
domains are toast?

Better to have a plan and not need it than need it and not have it.  It's
called 'contingency planning'.  And a very good idea no matter the endeavor.
