We should totally figure out a solution for this.  I also have
resources available to host DNS.

I am a volunteer for the Association for Computing Machinery, and we
are beginning to use Zope and Plone pretty significantly.  Perhaps we
wouldn't mind owning this zone.  We currently have no DNS management
tool, but I have the source code to an old one laying around I could
ressurect, ugly as it may be.

One reason I like the idea of the ACM hosting this zone is that we are
probably going to stick around, so Zope.org won't be likely to fall by
the wayside.  Perhaps we could devise a system whereby several
organizations provide NS records for zope.org and replicate, either
via AXFR or otherwise.
