Perhaps, if they didn't decide to be their own registrar as well
and run it all on the same network as it seems.

Maybe company divisions running different parts of infrastructure
should be self-hosted 100% on their own, different AS, different networking points, etc.
Or don't try to be everything top down all in the same company.
