To add to this, this would still be very little, and in most cases,
limited information since most phishers/ scammers, etc. host the scams
on similar sounding subdomains at best.

It would still be interesting, if the information that can be gathered
from this (like owner name patterns, etc) can be used to monitor
registrations by a similar entity...

Just a thought.
