Could DNS help solve this?

This is not a bind problem, not really a DNS problem. I still hope that
these might be able to help provide the solution.

With the growing number of registrars of e.g. .com domains, it becomes
difficult or even almost impossible to figure out which whois server you
should ask for information about a domain name.

Could that information be added by the registrar to the glue as e.g. a
txt RR, so that RR tells which whois serer to use for the domain?

I guess that either an RFC or some other standards text would be needed
to make this happen and happen in a uniform way.

I assume I am not the only one feeling lost here?

Best regards
