i'm not at liberty to say who i selected.  the criteria was, recursive
nameserver implementors and operators who needed really long lead times
to protect their customers, plus invited experts whose past work made
them ideal for brainstorming the solution space given the schedule.

noone who was left out should take it as a sleight.  i'm proud of the
work this team did, and proud that when dan's hack eventually leaked, it
was not a member of the dns community who leaked it.  had i invited the
other 50 people whose expertise could have helped, the sheer size of
that population would have almost guaranteed a leak before defcon.
