Seems to me that we need to be somewhat careful here. If we are seen
as "safe harbor" for every site that gets its DNS records pulled, we
could put our T1/T2 operators at risk. It might be a bit premature to
be talking about this without exploring ways to mitigate the risk of
individual admins.

That said, we should revisit the idea of incorporating OpenNIC and
having T1/T2 operations operate under the OpenNIC "umbrella." Short
of this discussion, I'm really not all that hot to deal with another
visit from the men in black...
