This is apparently causing some routing problems; many ISPs (especially in
Europe) build their BGP filters from the data at at regular
intervals. No = no routing policy data = screwed up BGP.

Perhaps there should be a list of "sacred" domains that should never be
suspended no matter *how* long they go without paying their fees. I wonder
what happened in this case?
