Well, not really. He said "*registry* systems" which are almost be 
definition more complex then a relatively small domain. The root servers 
have to manage thosands of deligations and what not, not just a handful 
of zones. It might not be apaprent but there is a *LOT* more to it for 
something with the scope the the root servers have. You cannot hope to 
equate that to run of the mill DNS management some company might need.
