To clarify, all gTLD registrars require nameservers to be registered with
the registry. This is because the registrar is simply passing the requests
along to the registry, and the registry itself requires that any nameservers
in use on a domain must be registered first. To my knowledge, all gTLD
registries require this. I am positive about com/net/org, and almost certain
about biz/name/info. As for the ccTLDs.... all bets are off.
