Personally in this instance I think the enterprise has been setup on a
domain that isn't really intended for that sort of use.  However, the
enterprise itself is just as valid as any other.  For instance the
impact of a hosting provider or ISP going out of business or providing
shabby service would have even more impact than DNS being down.
Alternative DNS and domains/hostnames can be quickly set up but if you
loose your data and/or connection, then things become very serious and a
site may not be restored quickly.  There are a number of third level
domain/hostname registries, I run one myself, they often provide a
better service than the second level registries.  I admit, there is
always the chance a registry will not be professionally run but then,
that applies to the second level registries also, look at how many TLD's
have lame systems.
