seed resolvers? Re: hijacked (VeriSign refuses to help)

As much as it pains me to say, I'm sure there is a little difference when it
comes to some of the big domains.

1.  It doesn't take any rocket scientist to sit back and say "Ummmm...  I
really don't think this is a legit move" without a lot of thinking!

2.  If a lawyer for AOL or MS or some really big company sent a letter
saying something about if you don't change this back in the next 30 seconds
or we will destroy your company, it would be more believable!

Unfortunately, size does matter.  :)

I remember that in a similar case in .de several larger ISPs put the
previous ('correct') zone on their resolvers. Would
a) people here feel that is an appropriate measure for this case
b) do it on their resolvers
c) the people want that to happen in the first place?
