RFC2182 advised against this 11 years ago. Hi. Under principles that go back much longer than even RFC 2182 (as does the principle of separated name servers -- 2182 just reaffirmed an old principle and stated it more clearly), a registry should be able to remove a zone if it is consistently poorly administered. Given the circumstances of e164.arpa, I think actually doing that would require a discussion between RIPE NCC and the IAB. But I see no reason why it should not be possible to reach consensus on a mechanism for notifying a Tier 1 registry that, if they do not manage to establish servers that do not fate-share, the zone delegation will be removed until they develop and implement a plan. john
