In an effort to find some kind of balance (I won't even try to say
"consensus") between those who hate the idea of slaving the root
zones, those who like the idea but don't want it to be the default,
and those who like the idea, I've made the following change:

1. Change the default behavior back to using a hint zone for the root.
2. Leave the root slave zone config as a commented out example.
3. Remove the B and F root servers from the example at the request of
   their operators.

I hope that we can now dial down the volume on the meta-issue of how
the change was done, and focus on the operational issues of whether
it's a good idea or not.


FYI,

Doug
