hmmm to make changes you have to PGP authenticate the request....
Catch22, no?

Yes, I am being obnoxious.  You can obviously call them and have them
update all your (how many?) domains manually do eliminate the pgp
requirement so that you can then change each one to CRYPT.  [File away
that first response that has your encrypted password.  I am told you don't
ever get it again.]
