I just sent mail to noc at icann.org referencing the problems you described 
and pointing them to this thread as well. One can safely assume that we 
should here from someone at ICANN soon, and I see that we've already 
heard from Anand regarding the situation with sec2.

Obviously the problem with sec2 has been going on for a while (it 
currently has serial number 2011021000) so hopefully a response from 
ICANN will include some mention of what monitoring is being done for the 
zones that they manage, and how this issue slipped through a crack in 
that monitoring.
