comment For the .com TLD, is there any known change tracking for WhoIs information?
This kind of scenario is one of the reasons why I built GWhois.org . People should be able to perform a whois lookup without having to worry about the information being saved or later being held for ransom. For example, who.is charges you $29.99 to remove your information! (Which is why if you are not sure what your domain is showing on the whois data you should NOT use who.is to check) You can learn more about GWhois.org here: blog.gwhois.org/updates/security-and-protecting-your-privacy

comment WHOIS command not returning useful information?
Currently, the authoritative whois server for .COM domain names is whois.verisign-grs.com. So the command should be updated to: whois -h whois.verisign-grs.com "domain google.com"

comment Verify that a name server is registered at a TLD registry
I have contacted VeriSign for input, and it turns out that VeriSign's WHOIS lookup for name servers is proprietary. The second part of your answer is correct.

comment Verify that a name server is registered at a TLD registry
I am asking about the IP address that is "registered" at the registry through your registrar. The .COM registry provides a WHOIS lookup that returns this IP address when given just the name server. Even if the name server is not being used by any domains, this information is on file somewhere at the registry. I have emailed VeriSign for their input. If I get a response, I'll update my question. :)
