[dns-operations] SE and the value of having NS in more than one TLD

Apparently the good folks at SE made a mistake with their host file
today and ended up with NS records of the form [a-j].ns.se.se. While
the problem has been corrected, and I certainly don't want to "pile
on" I thought this was a good time to mention the value of having NS
records in more than one TLD, even if you ARE a TLD. :)

Right now SE has as super-small packet size for an NS query (183) so
they certainly have room to add a server or two in another TLD, which
would have saved them from going off line today for a lot of the 'net.
