Dear Babak,
It was a great article and nice research.
I think location of the Root Servers is important item and I hope that with
putting K-Root Instances in local IXP's we can create better reachable.
For example in Iran we decided to put Asiatech's K-Root Instance into the
IXP and ask RipeNCC to peer with TIC Route-Server, So every member
available in IX can reach K-Root easily with best routing path.
