It would not kill the largest one, the ORSC, in Toronto, Canada.
It might put a damper on Atlantic Root and Pacific Root, unless they had an
off-shore option. But, how are they going to stop all those zone servers,
behind all those firewalls? Recent NANOG discussions indicated what to use
for a internal TLD. Note that this  was NOT a discussion on whether or not
to run an internal zone server, but which TLD to run on it. This means that
they are building their own root zones already.

OOOooo, Maybe I should warn the NANOG folks that ICANN is going to make
their deviant zone servers illegal.
