 I am going to stick to the operational comments:
 ICANN plans on taking control of the root servers. It is my understanding
 that the current "" server is being designated as the 
 new authoratative source server. 
 NSI is under contract to turn over the A root server at the order of the
 Department of Commerce which they have said they will do.
