 Somehow I think that's EXACTLY what the founding fathers had in mind:

 "The Congress shall have power to ... fix the standard of weights and
 measures" U.S. Constitution, Article 1, Section 8, Par. 5
So which are the root servers, a unit of weight, or a unit of length?
Why limit oneself? It is reasonable to assume that the successful deployment of a root server represents a milestone.

1 mile = 5280 feet
1 stone = 14 pounds

Therefore, a milestone is equal to 73920 foot pounds. Convert to your preferred units.
And we were talking to New.net today about 800lb gorillas in the marketplace. I wish I'd seen this sooner. :-)
