And you shouldn't have to pay for phone service to have a phone number
reserved.

HUH?

Then maybe NSI should have a policy for reserving domains without making
them "live", much like they do with the on-hold domains.

But for the time being, since you must have 2 nameservers listed to apply
for a domain, you're going to need someone to provide that nameservice for
you. Just like if you're going to reserve an 800 or 888 number, you need a
long distance company to service it, even if it is routing that number to a
disconnect recording.
