According to Vittorio Bertola, the “single root” is in fact a myth: a significant number of different root server systems have been in use for years and already coexist without problems.
To split efficiently the single root, the main condition, [...], is that the resulting set of root server systems is of the incremental type. This would mean, in practice, that:
1. All root server systems should agree to “carry” each other’s TLDs, and let their users access all TLDs from all different root systems;
2. Different root server systems, with different regulating entities or processes, would be in charge for different sets of TLDs;
3. All root server systems should commit not to interfere with the management of TLDs that belong to other systems;
4. All root server systems would be free to introduce new TLDs, as long as the related strings are not already in use by any other root server system.
