In particular, many of the countries where domain names are their
"primary export" (think .nu, .cc, etc) do this. Some of them have
seperate MX records, too, so all mail to non-existant domains gets
shunted off somewhere.
On the flip side, the people who run .bix and .info (?) tried the same
stunt as Verisign a few months back, and if I remember my news blurbs
right, the US Gov't asked them to stop.
