Lets raise the level on this discussion.

In my mind there are in two separate issues and everyone is answering
the second one while I was hoping for discussion on the first one.

I1: Is it a good idea to encourage people to turn their recursive servers into
     root servers ?

I2: How can the root zone be distributed to million recursive servers in a
     safe and timely manner ?
