Ask ICANN (people,website, mailinglists).
RIR's do (IP|AS) numbers, not (DNS) names.

If you want to run your own "root server" then simply alias the 13 IP
addresses on one machine, inject /32 routes for them into your IGP
towards that machine and you are done. With a bit of trickery you can
even use this box to forward the queries on to the real machines, but
caching them locally.

The rest of the world doesn't have to be bothered how you run your local

But that is my personal opinion of course ;)
