But sticking to the point, TLD servers should (under most circumstances) be recursive. Thing is, those that are, are likely to stay that way.
I personally know several folks from within and wayyy from outside the DNS world who discovered this very out there and obvious issue and worked hard to try and contact the operators. Those that haven't fixed it yet, likely won't if all thing remain even.
Others I am not aware of likely did the same, withs imilar results. I guess we could try again.
