[dns-operations] Missing .us and GTLD records??

Now I'm a bit confused, if "J" was also a member of an IPv4 anycast cloud, 
why not publish it? And if that can't be done, just pubish the same IPv4 
as one of the other working letters.

I know it will be a very very long time before I (and the majority of 
the internet) can talk IPv6 natively. Is our punishment for that to be cut 
off from "J".

I can update all my tools, but that is still not going to get me to be 
able to talk to "J".

Seams like it could be fixed, but I would say that my resolver not being
able to talk to "2 out of 9" of the auth servers for the TLD is
a nice side effect.
