This is why the Public Suffix List has two sections :-)

My understanding from the wording is that for the purposes of the BRs, a
Domain Name Registrar is someone who is part of the official system, not
someone who has registered a short domain name like "com.se" or "co.za",
even if they act like a proper registrar and even if it happens to be
the same people running the show.
