You are confusing root servers with TLD's. The root servers only serve ".", as in only refer you to the proper server's for a particular TLD. They have nothing to do with the evil wildcard.

    It is true that the root servers are not the source of the problem, only the com and net TLD servers. However, if we don't trust Verisign to do the right thing with com and net, why should we trust them to maintain the root zone? What's to prevent them from pulling the same stunt there?
