serious violation of their contractual obligations to the Public-Root.
Sounds like chaos. If only there was some way of co-ordinating a central root, managed by a trustworthy, established, stable main player.

A bit like an internationally organized, non-profit corporation that has responsibility for Internet Protocol (IP) address space allocation, protocol identifier assignment, generic (gTLD) and country code (ccTLD) Top-Level Domain name system management, and root server system management functions.

Has anyone considered this ?
