Ah, good, and I hope a few people who are usually responsive can do
the magic.  I have no idea whether the past problems with the
debian.org hostmasters have been fixed, so I was very reluctant to
have A records pointing into my address space in that zone.

For security-tracker.debian.net, the server now performs a redirect
from / to /tracker/.  This should be good enough, I guess.  Otherwise,
I'd have to serve the robots.txt and favicon.ico files from the Python
process, which is something I'd like to avoid.
