And here, I had thought that most of *.ROOT-SERVERS.NET. were ISC-sponsored,
mostly not-for-profit/academic/subsidized servers as it was.  To be sure,
VeriSign does not control the majority of such servers.  8-)

You're probably confused that ROOT-SERVERS.NET. != GTLD-SERVERS.NET.  The
latter hosts COM. and NET. and is run exclusively by VeriSign.
