For what it's worth, ARIN also came under an amplification attack recently.  This was early last month.  They were querying the heck out of ripe.net for which we provide secondary service.  It's a nice, signed zone that's chunky on the outbound.
We were able to completely mitigate the attack using Schryver & Vixie's ratelimiter BIND patch.  It's working quite well for us.
