I was always doutbtful of John Palmer's technical abilities but this
one is enough. He really believes you need an ORN to use an
alternative root?

[I use ORSN nameservers at home and I certainly do not rely on ORNs,
only on the fact that my IAP let the packets to port 53 go through
unmolested, something that not all IAPs guarantee.]
