    DNS resolved on end users systems
    by askii on Tuesday January 07 2003, @08:19PM (#10914)
    User #3623 Info | http://www.exody.com/
    I think I understand this a bit... One could subscribe to a daily
    upload of say 10% of the root zone that is actually useful and
    void of all the ***** ... The software that resolved the dns
    would have all the information on the end users system so no
    isp, rsp, xyz, or no other anyone could "control" the portion
    of the internet that you wish your family to see and use....
    You would have a choice of which company to subscribe to
    the root services... Very very interesting... whitehouse.com
    could actually be a real site about the whitehouse and
    amazone.com could actually be information about a river.
    If someone actually subscribes (and pays real money) to
    have information sent to them about private or public sites
    on the internet, then how could anyone have any complaint
    about that? I also think that having multiple subscriptions
    for portions of the zone could also be useful. Say I want the
    sports and travel zone sections published by St. Luke Baptist
    Church or SafeRootsServices. Of the two hundred root service
    subscriptions I wonder which will be the most popular. Any
    so called "collisions" will be resolved by the priority value assigned
    by the end user. This will drive a good lawyer crazy and an
    ip attorney insane.

    Very simple. The RS-DNS is a pure RootServer (see the Root Server property of Verisign in ex.) , but is posible for you to have a RootServer in your company.
    The benefits?
    the owner of RS controls Internet
    if there are many owners there is more democracy
