Given it was just a slightly broken re-delegation, it's more feasible
for most people to have waited for usual DNS propagation than try to
convince their upstreams/ISPs to reload their DNS servers for one
non-local domain's benefit.  Most ISP staff would take one look at
such a request and snicker.

Alternatively, if one uses some form of *nix, there are at least a
couple of ways to get around this.
