That IS the situation we are referring to, yes.

Sounds great- we'll be happy to try it out!  Just let us know when/where
it's available, at your convenience.

I'm sure you're aware of this- but just to be sure- if you're updating
NS TTL records in your cache, you'll need to explicitly handle that
second situation I described where you have "older" servers still
authoritative a zone that they shouldn't be, which causes a
significantly larger issue.
