I understand, however just for clarity (and somewhat orthogonal to this thread), there is nothing wrong with having multiple root servers or server systems.  What matters is the namespace, that is the universe of all possible names. How that namespace is implemented, whether it is on the "traditional" name servers or ORSN or via ISP's resolvers  mirroring the root zone or my copying the root zone and installing it on my laptop, is irrelevant (particularly given DNSSEC).  Where things break down is when people want _different_ namespaces at the same time they expect those namespaces to interoperate and not leak.
