	I'd say that you give them a grace period to correct the
	faults then withdraw the delegation if the faults are not
	fixed.  If you want to be in the DNS then you need to supply
	correctly configured, rfc compliant nameservers.

	If you are incapable of operating a nameserver correctly there
	are companies that are capable of doing it for you.
