It also isn't too useful in cases such as where a domain becomes
undelegated due to expiry (e.g. the registrant no longer exists).

Yes please.

I'm even tempted to suggest that this is a sufficiently basic service that
it perhaps should have been in the registry (as distinct from registrar)
spec.  I guess it's too late now?
