Also, this appears to be par for the course for the last two IP Address
changes on root-servers.net.

That's why they keep the old address online for at least six months after
the official change.

You've just given 3 weeks notice for a component change in one of the few
critical part of the Internet's infrastructure, at a time when most

I think that /was/ the advance notification - you've got 6 months :)

 "The old address will continue to work for at least six months
  after the transition, but will ultimately be retired from
  service."

Cheers,
