While there are many smaller TLD zones that don't get updated very often and which have wide-open AXFR to all and sundry, I'm betting that the majority of zones that people on this list care about either update sufficiently rapidly that zone synchronisation is non-trivial, or have zone transfer restrictions in place, or both.Well, let's rephrase that. Anyone can't get a TLD zone?
If you want an answer worth reading, then ask ISC or RIPE. I'm sure this is something that has occurred to them to think about.What could F or I do if an operator were advertising those blocks internally? Consider them no different than blackholes. It's the same concept.
I could pontificate about the freedom of individual operators to do whatever they please versus the wider issue of coherence and consistency in the DNS, but it'd just be so much Friday-afternoon noise.
