I was going to wait for the poll rather than do a <me too>, but since 
we're being asked for our input now:

What is necessary here is that lame delegations disappear from the DNS, 
(i.e. that I get a proper NXDOMAIN rather than a timeout).  That means 
working with the registrant, and if that fails, pulling the delegation 
for the lame subdomain from the DNS.  In my opinion it does not require 
publicizing the problem via WHOIS or any other method.
