  As I understand it, the root servers will stay put,
where they are and operated by the current group of operators.

That is not entirely true.

Methinks the reporter here has a serious misunderstanding of
the issues. As to the "problem that exists", I can only hope that
you are right and we only have a single "problem".

I didn't see the reporter injecting commentary in the article, instead
sticking to objective facts and quotations, so I am curious as to why you
believe they have a "serious misunderstanding" of the issues.
