number and distribution of registrations maybe - that comes down to number
and sizing of servers and geography/network diversity, the others are at best
operational concerns for the backend, not for the "frontend" DNS servers.

Taking RFC 2870, why wouldn't all of section 2 and most of section 3 and
section 4 be applicable to both gTLD and ccTLD servers (changing root zone
and IANA as appropriate)?
