My inclination has been to solve problems rather than burn things down...  
Changing the root doesn't solve the problem of all someone's servers being 
down.  Getting a useful (first priority: up, second priority: in and by 
the country of service) set of servers into the root does solve the 
problem.

I think that we (PCH) and ICANN, and RIPE, and Randy Bush, among many 
others, have all put quite a bit of work into trying to see that happen.  
Starting over doesn't build a better system, just a less trusted one.
