And a third alternative would be domainholders who have registered and paid
for domain names which they intend to use in the future but have not
gotten around to setting up websites on them yet.

Internic's Domain Dispute Resolution Policy, Rev 2 [1], required two
operational nameservers; in Rev 3 [2], they've dropped that requirement. 
They're still listing it in the FAQ [3], tho.  It seems unclear whether 
they intend it to be a policy or not...
