Eminently reasonable.  Supposedly, your registration fee is a lump-sum to
cover the costs of administering the DNS entry over the length of the
registration.  Any time periods you're not getting *correct* administration
of that entry should not be charged for.  It's charging you for work not
performed; which just happens to be illegal.
