To partly answer my own question, no.  The data returned by root
(gtld) nameservers is not changing rapidly.  Thanks for the pointers
to "fast flux" too.  Wasn't familiar with this attack or terminology.

All the same, it would seem to be an easy and cheap abuse to address,
at the gtlds.  Why are these obvious trojans are being propagated by
the root servers anyhow?
