[dns-operations] i've got a conflict of interest, can a non-implementor answer this?

in http://gcn.com/articles/2009/01/12/dns-requires-a-layered-approach.aspx we
see the following exchange:

	"GCN: BIND, which is the most widely used DNS server, is open
	source.  How safe are the latest versions of it?

	TOVAR: For a lot of environments, it is perfectly suitable. But in
	any mission-critical network in the government sector, any
	financial institution, anything that has the specter of identity
	theft or impact on national security, I think using open source is
	just folly."

anything i might say would be seen as self serving, so i hope that others
here who are not DNS implementors will add professionally worded comments
to this article explaining your views about the need for critical
infrastructure to have some open source mixed into it.
