Obviously I didn't make it clear what is the problem in my previous post.
So far I got the following 2 replies:

"The NIC should allow for dummy [default] nameservers and allow the 
technical contact of a nameserver to remove his or her nameservers from a 
domain without requiring an administrative ack."

Yes, but we are not the technical nor the admin contact for these domains;
we just provide the IPs. What I propose is that the tech or admin contact
of the NETBLOCK has authority to delete the host registration by virtue of
the IP being his.

"If the IP's are allocated to you, what's it matter where your old
customer  still points their NS? Just remove the old customer from all of 
your db's and reallocate your IP's elsewhere."

We've been doing precisely that, and that's where the problem comes in.
The new customer cannot register his nameservers because the IP is already
registered as a nameserver. Then he complains, we look like idiots, and we
have to give him other IPs to use.
