Re: 69/8...this sucks

I suggest a rotation like so: Jan-Apr: 69.w.w.0 Apr-Jul: 69.x.x.255 Jul-Oct: 70.y.y.0 Oct-Jan: 70.z.z.255 where the middle two octets are predetermined ahead of time. IIRC, some RFC recommends updating the root zone cache monthly... following this would ensure one had proper root/gTLD addresses. The above also would break DNS for broken networks for a two month stretch... long enough to flush out bad rules.
