I think you missed my followup where I indicated that from what I can 
see, Verisign is creating host objects for every host mentioned in a 
delegation regardless of bailiwick, but not putting glue records into 
the zone where they are not needed.

For peace of mind I would much rather see the IP addresses in those host 
objects removed when they are not needed as glue, rather than being 
ignored, since that reduces the chance of a spurious glue record being 
published accidentally.
