Named *is* stable.
This is a classic case of "Garbage In - Garbage Out".
People don't keep the NS RRsets in the parent and child
zones in sync. People don't keep the glue (parent) and the
real address records (child) in sync.
The rules for making this work are pretty simple.
KEEP THE RECORDS IN SYNC.
Sometime you need to use a clue bat. There are plenty
of sites which will check if the records are in sync and
report if they are not.
Registries and registrars could be doing there part as
well by checking the delegation *before* they are added /
changed to ensure that the RRsets are consistant with what
the change would produce. They could also periodically
be rechecking (e.g. daily) and reporting errors so they
can be fixed.
