In fact, some registrars do require that they have the new zone nameserver
names and IP addresses registered, at least with themselves, and if it's a
new zone, you may not be able to put them inside the zone on first setup;
Domain Discover just did this to me on a change, and I believe I've had the
latter happen to me as well: the automated system wanted to *validate* the
IP to name mapping in... um, DNS.
For a new domain.
Which wasn't up yet.
