It has nothing to do with willing. The cost of having 69/8 space is said to be ridiculously large, and falls on the unfortunate recipients. Both the root zone and hints are PGP-signed; transfer could be automated. I found the "check/update root hints" citation with a bit of Google... the grasshopper book, 4th edition, page 157. So it's not an RFC, but rather a recommendation. CJR> Perhaps, if the problem were defined in proper terms, and a I thought it had been.

This has been suggested. Granted, little distinction has been made between root/TLD. The TLDs would be much easier to implement than the roots.
