Actually a couple of weeks ago I was able to get domains via PGP.  The weird 
thing was that they sent back two of them telling me they couldn't decode 
them (and right there is the return email they were fully decoded).  The 
even stranger thing was when I resubmitted things they came back and 
told me that the domains already existed.  So they actually added the 
domain for me and sent back the wrong message the first time.
