Re: domain isn't registred, but does exist in root-servers?

Isn't netsol now updating the com/zone nameservers in "real time" (5-minutely
intervals or some such)?  WHOIS is presumably still only updating twice
per day.  If so, then this phisher registered the domain just hours to
minutes ago.  FWIW "sedgq.com" has a SOA sequence of 2004102301 ("today").
