[dns-operations] Systemic DoE failure at worldnic.com nameservers

As seen at:


over 400 "small" signed zones (zone apex only in the NSEC chain) return
incorrect "NODATA" RCODEs for "_25._tcp.<zone-apex>. TLSA ?".  The
provided NSEC records instead prove "NXDOMAIN".  This breaks email to
these domains from DANE-enabled MTAs.

If I'm not mistaken, "worldnic.com" is a NetworkSolutions brand, don't
know whether they have anyone on this list.  WHOIS contact Cc'd.


P.S.  Top 5 nameservers with DoE breakage:

    609 registrar-servers.com
    402 worldnic.com
    248 mijndomein.nl
    138 axc.nl
     75 ebola.cz
