Individual servers drop on and offline but the network as a whole is more 
robust. It is easy to take down the entire network of course, but this is very 
noisy. It is very hard to selectively prevent only a particular revocation from 
being served by the keyservers. Most other methods of distributing keys allow 
for selective blocking of one domain or even one address.
