Note this is not an unusual requirement, .nz requires the same thing. The
registration process even automatically checks for proper authorative
zones on the name(d) servers. It never sees human eyes :)

However, I am not famillar with any registry which requires seperate
paths to DNS servers. I'm not saying it isn't a good idea nor that RFC2182
doesn't provide a good rationale, but the question is at what point is the
registry overstepping it's responsibility.
I liken it to ISPs filtering traffic to their customers. Sure, there's a
good argument for it, but isn't that stepping into something that the
ISP doesn't have clear responsiblity for?
To put it another way, how many safety notices to we need before we let
stupid people mess up their systems? :)
