It does work, but ONLY for things that are the primary domain, not
the secondaries.  Hence, it doesn't fulfill the need.

Additionally, they send it to you on a periodic basis.  Some of these
issues need to be resolved quicker than that.

(N.B. - The report format is damn ugly, but its saved a couple of our
client ISPs from getting their domain name shut off.)
