Umm, I would say that DNS is a giant success story about
administratively decentralized technology, but my parsing of this
sentence makes me believe that you think it is not administratively
decentralized but should be.  I suppose only the TLD servers have
their DNS records administered of necessity by a single agency, and
those provide substantial redundancy.
