Wouldn't be a first to step to cover root server *operators* (and root
DNS server sites) to audits, lift them out of obscurity, and introduce
some form of accountability?

It's not a bad idea to make sure that the data that goes into the root
system isn't compromised, but right now, anyone can already review
that, and there is even some public documentation for the update
process.  Contrast this with the situation on the operator side, where
important information such as site selection criteria is only
available under NDA (if at all).
