Could you explain how this would be possible? If the family is not using
the domain for e-mail, what's the point in holding it for them?

Obviously, a big company cannot make more traffic on a domain it doesn't
own than the owner itself (think about it!).

The point was finding out the "in-use" status. You seem to think that this
is about _comparing_ traffic, but that makes no sense: what would you
compare with what??

Why? DNS service is relatively low-volume, and accounting is done at
relatively few centralised machines.
