Anyone who is concerned enough about "." content DNS service that they 
consider the step of regularly checking that it is there, should really 
be instead considering running *their own* (private) "." content DNS 
server, whose connectivity and fault tolerance they can manage 
themselves, replicating the DNS database of the "." organisation of 
their choice.
