What would be the utility of doing that?  Shouldn't we first direct
effort towards making the ROOT servers that reliable?  And then there's
always the networks used to *reach* these servers, which are often of
questionable reliability, especially when a MAE is involved.

Then again, that assumes that routers need military-grade DNS
capability, which is an absurd concept to begin with.  The routers
should simply continue to operate normally (or slightly degraded) if DNS
isn't available.  Any other design is doomed to horrible race
conditions.

about things that need near, or even at, military-grade reliability levels
of service.
