Yes, and my point was that having a honeynet cannot protect you from
DNS infrastructure attacks (in this situation).  The number of open
ports is only helpful if you start seeing requests/attacks come in for
them.  But if I call the DNS registrar on the phone, what honeypot
will detect me?  I understand your point in the other case though :-)
