bzeep.  nonsequitur.  there can only be one root zone.  if you change your
dns configuration to subscribe to something else, then you're off "the internet"
in a technical sense.  (that some root-looking zones incorporate all icann data
past present and future is merely a testament to the fact that "the internet"
means "what the one true official root zone includes", and should not be
indicative of some kind off odd "value subtraction service" by a root-like zone
