Now for a completely different take on this, which I'm surprised not
to have seen from someone already.
IANAL, but ...
Gratuitously continuing to serve out (partially) invalid zone data
is likely a tortious interference in the domain-holder's enjoyment
of what he has paid for (otherwise put: a DOS attack).
I expect that an ISP's legal department and/or underwriters would
have no difficulty either to understand this or to explain it
appropriately to their technical colleagues. It's all about finding
who's holding the clue-by-four which you need wielded!
