The size of the zone file is not a problem, as indicated earlier.

I don't feel like reducing our reliability just to resolve a non-problem
is a good idea either.

We explained to you on IRC many many times why this is a bad idea. The
size of the zone files is not an issue anyway, so I don't see why this is

Resolvers are trivial to set up compared to a tier 1 server. People who
decide to create a TLD need to be competent at running it by themselves,
