There are many other reasons why registration without delegation from  
my point of view is absolutely critical. If nothing else for the ones  
that are afraid of zone walking just because they do not want to  
disclose what domain names are registered. zone walking is then only  
disclosing the delegated domains. A subset of what is registered.
