An SRU into existing releases makes good sense.  The change is very
minimal, with the biggest risk being that somepoint after the current
operator of D stops using the IP address, said address gets assigned to
someone who decides that giving out the wrong answers would be a thing
to do.  I don't see that as even remotely likely.

As for what the issue actually causes: it slows down lookups a very very
small fraction of the time, since BIND does round-trip time tracking on
requests, and prefers hosts that answer faster, and rarely queries the
root nameservers (most TLDs are 2 day TTLs) in any case.
