Give my regards to the a-eskwadraat people, tell them they are running VvTP
software! I'm on this page

No - it is very bad form for an authoritative nameserver to do DNS queries
in order to function. It could lead to all kinds of bad things. In theory,
the whole internet could melt down after a big power failure - you would
need DNS to start the DNS! Unlikely, but it might happen.

In general, authoritative nameservers rarely change names, and when they do,
it is a big event, and people WILL let you know.
