Re: more on lame-delegation.org, seems to waste IP space and DNS

For all top-level domains you can register a domain and not have any
name servers specified for it. In whois it'll say exactly that - 
"no nameservers". 

I'd be very much against removing these domains from root zones entirely, 
but I maybe biased since I use these zone files for my own software.
