>>> I think you are underloading the term 'registrar' with that definition. For over a decade, in many TLDs, "registrar" means an agency that moves information from a registrant to a registry. In many TLDs, the registry is legally prohibited from dealing directly with the registrants except in extreme circumstances. Specifying that a particular DS record is associated with a particular domain is on the same level as specifying that a particular NS record is associated with a particular domain.

Care to explain? :-)

I was trying to re-state the earlier point that you responded to (and which I agree with) that the term "registrar" was being overloaded.
Very happy to take my confusion off-line, as ever!
