I understand "in-bailiwick" to be a property of the name of a nameserver, independent of whether you are looking at the glue or authoritative NS RRs - it is not the same as "in-zone". In-bailiwick nameservers must have glue. But you said ''There is also no such thing as 'in-bailiwick glue for the TLD's DNS servers'.'' I think you are arguing about the meaning and location of glue, whereas I am arguing about the meaning of "in-bailiwick".
