This was super interesting. I have to admit I had one of Ken Fallon's thoughts (which he expressed in the community news covering April) - what happens if someone hosting a DNS server in the opennic group returns authoritative results for a name that ICANN should be responsible for - as an example, imagine someone else returns authoritative results for your bank's or doctor's URL.
