Yes. And it isn't a question of signing the root -- that just makes it more ... fun. It is a generic authentication problem that crops up anytime there is any change to the root. Fortunately, the root community is relatively small and well defined and IANA has evolved processes that, while sub-optimal, do generally work.Do you imagine that, if IANA/ICANN/USDOT/someone were told to implement a policy to sign the root, that they would have trouble identifying the owners of the TLD's reliably?
Yes. However, I believe you all are proposing to remove the "relatively small and well defined" component that helps IANA deal with the issue on a daily basis. A hard problem.If so, wouldn't this problem already exist today in the information already present in the root zone?
