Be prepared...  Less than two years ago a prominent DNS service began
denying ANY queries for a previous employer's domain, and some (important)
emails were not delivered.  Historical measurements will help quantify
potential issues, but certainly those are not comprehensive, and like
anything, there will be breakage.

I'm not suggesting it's not the right direction, but the change seems
somewhat abrupt, and might result in some undesirable near-term effects.
Community support and publicity could help mitigate issues.

Best regards,
