The end date on NSI's contracts/cooperative agreements have passed, several times :-) The nifty thing about having NSI as the business owner of all the GTLD servers now is if NSI ever goes bankrupt we loose *all* the GTLD servers in one swoop to the bankruptcy trustee. At least with the "volunteer" servers spread throughout different organizations, if NASA went bankrupt, we wouldn't also lose all the other servers at the same time. If I compare NSI's balance sheets to some of the "volunteers" I've got to wonder which ones are really the more stable organizations.
