But as has been pointed out repeatedly whenever this topic comes up,
many registries are not allowed to contact registrants directly.
Registrars could do this for their registrants if they wanted (and in
fact some do).  If registries do this and detect a problem, they don't
even know that they have anything useful to do, because the registrar
might not be the DNS operator (cf. other discussions about
"ripple-free transfer" and DNSSEC).
