I agree.  The root servers should have no filtering in place to block any 
demographics (unless of course a given node is DoSing them).

The last time I tried to contact a .mil to report an open relay that was 
being abused, I was accused of being a spammer that had "hacked" their 
server.  Since that time I reject .mil mail.
