How about trying to move some of the root name servers to the exchange
This will make them avaliable to all ISP/NSP's regardless of peering
arrangements with others and would also improve connectivity to them.
For security and stability reasons (aswell as political) they should
not be run by a single organisation.
This is already being done.
You have one at the DGix, the Internic machine is being moved,
and there is a proposal to move/add additional
servers to other exchange points around the globe.
What else would you suggest doing?
I'm working on a plan to restructure the mbone topology to better reflect
the current actual topology. There are some other ideas in the mill.
