How so? Anyone can get a zone and turn up [a-m] on-net
and outperform (response and uptime) many of the existing
instances of root servers.
The root servers are easy; the zone is tiny and the update frequency
is miniscule.

We were talking about TLD servers.

I can't get a TLD zone? But back to the root servers. Are you
agreering with me that if I announce F and I root's netblocks
inside of my own network that everyone would be ok with that?

C'mon Joe, straight answer on that one. :)
