As pointed out by Rob Seastrom in private email, RFC2182 addresses things
of biblical proportions - such as dispersion of nameservers geographically
and topologically. Having 3 secondaries, only one of them on separate /24,
and none of them on topologically different network does not qualify.

Given that is/was public (I think?) - I wonder what are their 
sarbox auditors saying about it now ;)

Compliance of icann-accredited gtld-registrars with rfc2182 might be a
good subject for research (again, thanks to rs for idea)....
