IESG Telechat date: (if known)

Summary: Looks good.

Major issues: None

Minor issues:

This seems like a prohibition by omission:
      MAY also serve the zone, and the zone for the
      .arpa top-level domain [ARPAZONE],[RFC3172].
That is, it could be read to imply that root servers are prohibited
from serving other zones.  Why was this position taken rather than
simply noting that the root servers might serve other zones without
stipulating specifics?
