This happened to us once with the Argentinian registry. Someone, we
know not who, had registered the host with them,
which we happen to use as the primary NS for domains hosted with us.

When we went to register a .ar domain for the first time, our app was
rejected because the nameserver record didn't belong to us!

Was somewhat of a pain in the arse for our lad to have to sort out.
