Actually what worries me more is the following.
This is not a political question, only operational process.
Has ICANN and NTIA worked out their operational issues so they can quickly
change the root zone to reflect changes in ccTLD nameservers if people
need to change which name servers are handling the ccTLDs. Last year,
some of the ccTLD operators were complaining it sometimes took weeks after
they submitted the change for it to make it into the root zone.
I did a small check on how frequently DNS servers occure in the European
ccTLDs NS records. If I leave out the ones that only oocure once, I get the
This is after checking 18 ccTLDs. Most of them only have four secondaries.
If I read this correctly, the geographic distribution of servers is not
that bad, but it could be better. Preferably by going with more than four
secondaries. Consider that up until not to long ago, several of these
servers where behind the same upstream.
