Uh, yah. That was my point re: masses, etc.
We apparently have different assumptions implicit in "adding any new
TLDs". Root servers, like rule of law, is a consensual social delusion.
I'm not one that likes to limit my reachability, so from my perspective
no, they aren't added and I only see them through the subdomains of
new.net. Interesting how aware they are of their present lack of
critical mass; see their explicit instructions for non-windoze OS users.
They don't ask end-users to add their servers in, but rather to simply
extend their resolver search to look under new.net.
