These are the checkes done at for example my service http:// 
dnscheck.se/ (I do not have IPv6 connectivity so the IPv6 transport  
checks are not done) plus I do some tests for the email address in the  
SOA, and how many AS numbers the authoritative servers are in.

See for example http://dnscheck.se/log.pl?domain=isc.org&date=last

But, back to what I have found the harder question during the years,  
and that is what should happen if the tests fail? Should the  
delegation be withdrawn?
