ISP's willingness to do something is a policy decision and that's 
completely different than their capability to do something which is a 
technology decision.

I see zero reason that a parent zone operator can't delegate something 
to a private / non-globally-routed IP.

Not necessarily.  Just because the Internet at large can't access the IP 
that the child zone is delegated to doesn't mean that business partner's 
can't access it.  --  I believe that I saw in one of the messages that 
there was a VPN between the sites / business partners which did support 
/ provide routing to the private IP.

In some ways, this is similar to making something resolve to 
and / or ::1.  That information can be published in globally accessible 
DNS, but it will likely be of very limited value.
