Incompetance abounds at the InterNIC

My take would be register them as the billing contact and remain as the
adminstrative contacts - the NIC should then have a page set up that the
custoemr can go with a confirmation number to add their credit card info
directly - they could afford them a 3 day window to do so - or the domain
would be deleted.  They could also tag a domain that has been reregistered
a 2nd time and demand payment up front before it is registered this time -
that gives the customer 1 bite at convenience - and then hve to put up in
order to ever actually get that particular domain.
