You only need to register the CLASS according to RFC6195 Section 3.2.

Then you need to distribute an additional "root hint" file pointing to your
new root servers (similar to http://www.internic.net/domain/named.root)
As you can see, they only claim to be responsible for ./IN.

Then you can start selling domains from your new root.

Please allow me to add a professional advice. If you try to convince the
browser manufacturers to ask for your class instead of IN, you might have a
real market.
