Why don't you update 2870 then to make it so?

If all the roots provided it and were required to, there's no
problem.  But current best practice as defined by 2870 are
for roots to only answer AXFRs from other roots.

How can you advocate an OS pushing a configuration that isn't
guaranteed to be functional?  I understand the odds of it
breaking, and I understand the benefits.  That's not the issue.

This is a configuration that should be guaranteed to work for 2
years after every OS release that includes it.
