Because they were going to run it with other new and interesting
technologies such as DNSSEC signed and IPv6 nameservers.  Both of these
technologies are important to the growth of the internet and having them
deployed in a semi-production state would be an excellent chance to get the
bugs out of software.

So, I'm quite looking forward to about a years time when everyone who
brought .geek.nz domains without thinking discovers that they break for a 
large chunk of machines because they don't correctly support the standards.
:)

I'm also looking forward to trialing these technologies and upgrading
software I'm responsible for to work with them. (One day Undernet will have
IPv6 support.... One day....)
