You and I both know this is not something that I, IANA staff, or ICANN  
can dictate to you or any other root server operator.  IANA has  
developed and deployed a reasonably (to put it mildly) secure DNSSEC- 
signing infrastructure and make a signed version of the root zone  
available to all at ns.iana.org (with key information available at https://ns.iana.org/dnssec/status.html) 
  for demonstration/experimental/testing purposes. I had initially  
tried to have ns.iana.org be a hidden master for a set of root  
servers, but as I said previously, discussions broke down due to layer  
9 issues.

However, with that said, I'm sure folks at IANA would be interested in  
figuring out how to make the ns.iana.org system more useful for folks  
who are interested in doing stuff with it.  I suspect the right person  
to talk to would be Rick Lamb (richard.lamb at icann.org).
