I would think that the members of NANOG would
understand that the Root Name Servers they use
are critical to their operations. This is especially
true if several people on the NANOG list report
that they are having operational problems with
the Root Name Servers.

As a "group", you might want to consider the
following questions...

1. Do NANOG members all support one confederation
	of Root Name Servers ?

2. Have NANOG members converted to the NEW
	TRUE Root Name Servers ?

3. Are NANOG members mixing legacy Root Name
	Servers with entries for the NEW TRUE
	Root Name Servers ?

4. Is NANOG as a group working with the U.S.
	Government and the National Science
	Foundation (NSF) on a transition plan
	for the NSF/InterNIC now that we are
	approaching the last 12 months of that
	contract period ?

5. Does NANOG support any Root Name Servers ?
	If so, are those TRUE Root Name Servers
	that meet IETF RFC recommendations ?

6. Do NANOG members use any common network
	management software to make sure that
	the Root Name Servers they use are in
	synch, are checked regularly, are coherent,
	etc. ?

7. Does NANOG have a transition plan to IPv6
	and does it address Root Name Servers
	using IPv6 addressing ?

8. Does NANOG sponsor any educational programs
	for any or all of the above ?

P.S. NANOG's address is "nanog" not "nanon"...
