I think what Randy meant was the fun of THIS sort of thing happening:

1) Hosting company registers with NetSol.

2) Joe's Bar registers itself with CheapRegister, hosted by (1), so
of course their NS is even though they are

3) Fred's Bowling Alley registers itself with AnotherRegistrar, who is
more picky about the NS records - so they say "" but
give the A record for because that's who's actually
doing it.

4) Now just *try* and change any of this without leaving bits and
pieces of shredded and mangled DNS clue records from here to Zaire.
