Hi, apparently it's snagged at the .com root, see

I just think it is surprising that ICANN has no comment yet, because
it seems to add fuel to the arguments that the US Government has too
much control over the global Internet. I'm not saying I necessarily
agree or disagree with the arguments, I'm just saying that we have
heard this call for an alternate model or even an alternate DNS for
many years and we are likely going to see a resurgence after this
event, and I hope ICANN releases a statement.
Besides the NYT article, here are sample articles right now:
Does anyone remember the late Jon Postel's one-man redirect of the
root in 1998?
