I think it's a matter of perspective.
Someone did something many people feel they shouldn't have done. This
time it didn't result in breakage, but that doesn't mean there isn't a
problem to be solved.
The lines between operations and policy are, I think, a bit blurry on
this one. On the one hand, this is operational in that the
opportunity for problems was created by a renumbering event, but on
the other hand there's a policy issue surrounding what can/should be
done with the addresses of decommissioned root servers.
David has a good idea for an operational change that removes the
opportunity for the policy problem. Because of the relative rarity of
renumbering events, perhaps we're not in a huge rush to fix that
problem right this minute.. but it seems to me that's it's reasonable
to start work on it.
