	When you spend time chasing down reported bugs in you product
	which turn out to be broken delegations either by
	misconfiguration or non RFC compliant servers.  Should we
	just bill you for each and ever investigation that turns
	out to be a lame delegation?  It would provide us with a
	good revenue stream:-)
	There is a real dollar cost to registries not performing
	these checks.  Doing the check at the registry level will
	minimise the overall cost.
