...right. And Delegation of nameservice is a CUSTODIALSHIP for the end
user organization/entity. The pain in .US was felt when some 3rd-level
delegates took on a custodianship for free and then charged folks
underneath them, a form of delegation-squatting, with no intent of
sheparding the resource until clue was imparted to the more-appropriate
organizations. That's just wrong, and triggered involvement of legal
entities again.

And it is RFC1480. The major mistake was that good will and desire to
get folks to Do It Right would remain the prime motivator.
