If NANOG fulfills such an important role, it's probably a good idea to make sure the list still works when there are wide spread outages. There is only a single MX for merit.edu, and as far as I can tell it's not even multihomed. Also, since this is email, it depends on the DNS. In theory, news would be more rebust than mail, because of its distributed nature and it should be possible to make news work without relying on the DNS.
