Q: Is there a contact for people on the outside to contact these
operators when their domain disappears, because can't send email to the
listed POC because their domain isn't resolving.

Scott Rose @ NIST: Yes, there is. It is one of those things that most
people outside of the government don't know about, which is sad.  The
registrar for the government has a helpdesk, that is
'registrar at'. They have the database for all the current POCs
and the current operator is Verisign so it is a 24/7 helpdesk. And, they
can contact/call the operator and explain what kind of problems people
are seeing with their domain and what the solutions are.  There is also
a phone number for them on their website, so you could call them.

Which is 877-REG-GOVT (734-4688).
