Comment (by bryguy):

 Thanks for considering this request.

 The mailarchive linked content could be interpreted to mean that the ENS
 smart contracts are owned by a multisig Ethereum private key requiring 4
 of 7 signatures in order to be used. Either that, or the private key was
 sharded into 7 parts.

 Convincing four root-ENS-holders to override a situation caused by the ENS
 smart contracts working as expected would, and should, be difficult or
 impossible to arrange. Doing so even once might imply a burden of
 censhorship on those individuals and centralize the service.
