The maintenance of NS, DS, A and AAAA should be treated equally as core parts 
of maintaining a delegation.   There is currently no requirement, proposed or 
otherwise, for registrars to treat the creation and maintenance of these 
records on a equal footing.  Such a requirement should be clearly stated.

Many registrars currently require registrants to use different procedures, like 
opening a support ticket, to update AAAA and DS records, if they support them 
at all, whereas A and NS records are handled via. web forms.  This dichotomy in 
the handling of records is bad for the industry as a whole.  It is holding back 
the advancement of IPv6 and DNSSEC.
