Hi, Just as a (potentially self-serving, apologies if this offends) aside, there are several companies that specialize in DNS hosting out there. The one that I'm most familiar with (Nominum's), co-locates our equipment at IXPs, has an open peering policy (of course), and has multiple (paid) transit providers. We decided upon this approach for exactly the reasons you indicate: they tend to be both more stable and more neutral than ISPs. We also believe locating at IXPs can reduce latency and improve performance. We were already providing secondary for one of the TLDs affected by ns.eu.net going away and would, of course, be happy to provide services to others.
