Y'know, I thought I'd covered that point in my DNS NOI comments (now, lo,
14 years old:
but as it turns out, I had apparently confused "registrar" and "registry" --
not as mortal a sin then as it would be now -- so I can't actually point to
an answer to that question.
I do *have* an answer: yes; separating them is a good idea. I appeared to
have the opposite answer in those comments; I was miscalling a registry
a registrar, which is why it looked like that.
