Going back to operational issue (yes, incredible as it may seems, I
won't write here what I think of ICANN), there is a *technical*
solution to this issue, which is the one deployed by the
RIPE-NCC. Give a different *name* (and may be a different *IP
address*) to every ccTLD.

This is suboptimal because it limits the opportunity for nameservers to measure RTTs and contact the fastest server.

TLD operators should make up their mind: either control their servers, or trust the people that they gave control to to make these kinds of decisions.
