No, I don't think so.

The information would be published in the ISP's TLD-alike domain, not
the customer's subdomains.  E.g. 'co.uk', not 'mybank.co.uk', assuming
the information is "each domain $WORD.co.uk is independent".

The values are the same information that you are gathering.  The
ISP/NIC (Nominet UK for .co.uk) does not need to contact their
customers for this: it's a .co.uk policy.
