NSI Not allowing Host registrations for nameservers in sub-zones?

My issue is that every time I call NSI to have them help push those
host-forms through, they
tell me that they don't allow nameservers like a.dns.company.com and
b.dns.company.com anymore, you can manage old
records, but you can't request new registrations.

I think that they are on full or it, but every "Supervisor" I talk to there
seems to be spewing the same statement.

Who is NSI to declare my host-records not registerable?

They seem to be saying it as if, Registering a.dns.company.com as a name
server confuses our Online Manegment Software and therfore we are no longer
allowing customers to register hosts like that.

I am looking for some sort of "Authorative" answer, or the RFC# that states
that NSI has NO ability to make that type of host registration choice? And
that they should fix the problem with their software.

I've never heard of such a thing. register.com doesn't seem to have any
problem with all of our zones (including daimlerchrysler.com) being
delegated to nameservers whose names are in the
extra.daimlerchrysler.com zone.
