While we call it 'nameserver ... check', it is about the zone data
at least as much as it is about the servers.  Checks include
plain DNS and validation tests for DNSSEC.

Checks are applied at registration time (domain will be reg'd
anyway, but will only be delegated after test has passed)
and upon change to "technical" data.
