Unless IANA is actually using one (or several) of the tools listed above in order to check TLD zone files, it would most likely be a great service to the community if they’d publish the software they are currently using to check zone files – I don’t believe they are inspecting TLD zone files manually. Such a tool could be helpful to those who (as opposed to large ccTLDs) still edit zone files manually.
