 NSOL is the only one who has responsibility for this???  Shouldn't *all*
 registrars have this ability?
They do.

Don't change your info at NSOL if NSOL is not your registrar.
To explain it a little better, I think:

If you want to create "NS1.SOMEDOMAIN.COM", go to the registrar handling SOMEDOMAIN.COM and use their procedure.

If you want to create "NS2.SOMEWHEREELSE.COM", and they're using some other registrar, you use THAT registrar instead.

If SOMEWHEREELSE.COM is registered at $REGISTRAR_ONE, and SOMEPLACE.COM is registered at $REGISTRAR_TWO, and you want to use NS{1,2}.SOMEWHEREELSE.COM as NS servers for SOMEPLACE.COM, then you need to create the hosts with $REGISTRAR_ONE, and then update the domain record at $REGISTRAR_TWO.

More complex examples exist, but not aren't often encountered. :)
