Why? As far as end users are concerned, there are the servers that host
their domains and the servers that do the delegation. The fact that it
takes two sets of delegations to get to *.com is just an implementation
detail that has absolutely no impact on the domain owners.
The root servers used to host most of the GTLDs. When they split their
roles, it had little noticeable effect on DNS users.
