[CS-FSLUG] What if DNS goes down?

Trying to avoid the political implications here, I'm hoping we can stick  
to the topic: DNS service.

My knowledge is limited. Let's pretend for a moment some ruler decides for  
his country to "shut down the Net" the only way he knows -- kill the root  
DNS servers, or something similar.

For those running a namecaching server, that's not immediately a problem  
for their favorite sites. However, I am under the impression that server  
tries to renew/recheck now and then. Am I mistaken? Is there a way to  
prevent losing all your favorites if DNS disappears?

Feel free to ridicule my ignorance, but at least try to answer the main  
question. :-D
