At this time, IANA doesn't see a need to change the status quo. If
individual root server operators believe it prudent to change, we'd
be interested in understand the rationale.
My comments were directed at the idea of doing a public root slave
mechanism as a production service. Do you as a root server operator
think this change by FreeBSD is going to be sufficiently onerous to
change the status quo?
