Hi,

Haha, right, sure. Registrars (ahem?) will obviously not have an internal 
LAN address, because then nobody will be able to reach them. It's also not 
the registrars who run the "root" dns servers to find out a domain's 
nameservers, it's the NIC's.

Internal addresses in a traceroute are perfectly allowed, if an ISP wants 
to use internal addresses for his (its?) routers, he can surely do it.. You 
have not business pinging/administrating them from your own connection anyway..

Tom.
