Nope. :-) At least not yet ... ;-)

I can speak for ours (I-root), which remains operated separately, and
I'm sure others will speak up for their roots too.

The cooperation btw. F/C/E-root and Cloudflare has a feature. It creates
a diversity from the rest of us that I appreciate. Obviously that would
stop being a feature if we all cooperated with some cloud service
provider, but for now we don't. So it's a feature.
