And I can't see how that could be a disadvantage, especially
knowing the problems with orphan glues in the NS-object model.
Artificially maintaining a name that has been deleted seems
worse to me.

We at .CL use NS-attributes, and in the case you describe we
take care of deactivating NS in every domain if it went out of zone.

At the end, the user that delegates its NS to other name needs
to take care of that relation. They can always create subdomain
names and going glue if the target IP still answers.
