Why should only misspelt domains lookups go to him?
If nameservers found the additional root-NSs during the time they were
announced, they would have started to using them as much as all the
other root-ns, at least until they had enough data to make the RTT
decisions
on which are preferred, no?

|How did this happen anyway?  InterNIC? Postel?  Doesn't this error
imply that
|a  percentage of the Internet was unresolvable by the entire planet?
|
|It would really be great to find out what chain of events got us a
root
|nameserver on our network;  not that we wouldn't mind donating  the
resources
|to run one - it would just be nice to know in advance.  :-)
|
|
|Maybe we can get bilateral peering with BBN since we have a root
server,
