By "public DCC servers" do you mean servers that would join the 
couple dozen public DCC servers answering requests from the 40,000
(or perhaps a lot more) anonymous DCC clients?  More public DCC servers
would be welcome in the list in 
ost of the more than 250 DCC servers are private and used only by their
owner's DCC clients.

There are is a little more work required of the public DCC servers
including keeping the version of the DCC code they use more up to date
and running the cron scripts that generate lists of major or abusive
DCC clients and coordinate the blacklist of abusive clients.

It's just code, it is certainly possible in theory.  However, it
would be a major hassle to separate the dccd database files from
the configuration files.  Some of the files including /var/dcc/map
/var/dcc/flod.map, and the client whitelist .dccw hash files need to
be written the DCC programs and so are not exactly configuration files.
They generally built from read-only configuration files such
as /var/dcc/flod, but those files are locked and so opened for writing
by the programs that build the first set such as /var/dcc/flod.map.
