Wouldn't such an option have to walk the entire namespace looking for  
delegations, and wouldn't such a walk require the ability to enumerate  
the contents of zones hosted elsewhere?

(Or I could be misunderstanding what you're suggesting. The phrase  
"from the root to itself" confuses me, since "root" seems to be a  
namespace word, and "itself" seems to be a nameserver word).
