Well, sure.  Indeed, the reason I became a domain reseller was because it 
was easier than repeatedly rescuing friends and clients from all of the 
random nitwits they'd picked to register domains.

There are dozens of ways an incompetent provider can make your service 
fail, with the most common being failure to pay someone else, and we 
expect people to deal with it.  What is there about screwing up the 
contact email that makes it special?  I expect that a lot more than 0.6% 
of domains are suspended for failure to pay.
