[dns-operations] root? we don't need no stinkin' root!

Let me try to get away from what is or is not "big" and ask two
questions. (These are legit questions to me. I have studied the
DNS a whole bunch, but I do not operate any non-trivial part of the
DNS and so that viewpoint is valuable to me.)
(1) Setting aside history and how things have been done and why
(which I am happy to stipulate is rational)... At this point,
are there tangible benefits for getting information about the
TLD nameservers to resolvers as needed via a network service?
(2) Are there fundamental problems that would arise in recursive
resolvers if the information about TLD nameservers was no longer
available via a network service, but instead had to come from a
file that was snarfed periodically?
