|Can/does one registrar ever contact another trying to find out this info, even if it's SUPPOSED to be exclusive to the registrar controlling the domain? |
Registrars have their own databases. When they communicate with the registry they share SOME of their records, there is no need to send/receive creditcard data for example.
The model is more complicated for registrars which wholesale their services to registars. As resellers access the registars database rather than the registry.
But in both cases it is a matter of database security and access rights.
