 I am going to stick to the operational comments:
 ICANN plans on taking control of the root servers. It is my understanding
 that the current "l.root-servers.net" server is being designated as the 
 new authoratative source server. 
 NSI is under contract to turn over the A root server at the order of the
 Department of Commerce which they have said they will do.
