Paul, and other rootserveroperators (good scrabble word :), what would
your answer/problem/arguments/... be if an ISP would decide to inject
routes to the root-servers into their local network and point these

the the global rootservers of course.
if someone injects 22.214.171.124 (or any route which covers it) anywhere
that a dns client will see it whose owner has not explicitly agreed to
have their f-root service modified in this way, and then modifies the
service (which means does something with the queries other than forward
them to an ISC-owned server) then we would of course file a lawsuit of
some kind, even if it meant opening an ISC office in some new place in
order to have "standing."
I suggest you check isp's in the asia pacific region. Standard practice
in some cases to intercept all dns including root traffic. So i'm sure F
is one of them.
