Note you may want to use wording that is more generic.

E.g "how it might encourage DNS nameserver operators to take steps"

DNS nameserver operators currently include root server operators,
registries, registrars, telcos, ISPs, hosting companies, corporations,
small businesses and individuals.

As far as I know the majority of fast flux behaviour is not on
nameservers operated by registries or registrars (I could be wrong here
but this is just based on what I have seen - I haven't seen any stats).
