Not when the domains are just registered for cybersquatting (the other 
problem).  I have done something similar to what you suggest (but without
targetting an innocent thirdparty)... see http://www.chairtime.com/ as 
an example.

The abuse and legal threats were amusing to start with, but they're getting
boring now - I'd much rather just pull the glue records and break those
domains hard (nothing legitimate has ever been on those nameservers)
