I thought I already had... :-) Here it is again, perhaps more explicitly than before. There a number of other organisations who are monitoring DNS servers, some of whom may be willing to offer this as a commercial service. IMO those advocating the NCC is the only provider of DNS monitoring servers should demonstrate that that is the case, or that alternative offerings are tainted in some way and cannot be as impartial as the NCC's would be. If there really is no alternative, then the justification for extending the scope of the NCC offering is on stronger foundations. My earlier concerns still stand -- unless contradictory evidence emerges. Those concerns would diminish, but not go away, if it does turn out that there is no viable alternative and that fact is clearly documented.
