As manager of the Dutch part of EUnet I've seen several occasions
where our machine had severe trouble reaching a root server after
some involuntary downtime. The machine is on the same LAN as mcsun,
and thus reasonably well connected. Problem appeared to be an empty
cache and no reachable root servers.
I haven't seen any problems for the last months though, but that may
be due to the fact that the machine has been up for 107 days now :-)

If consensus is reached on point one I'd be happy if the new root
server was within walking distance:-) 
With regards to the good work they are already doing I'd say the 
NCC is the logical place for such a beast.
