Which is still meaningless.  Some name servers serve *hundreds* of web
sites, many competing with each other.  Often large hosting companies
will serve hundreds of web sites, all with the *same* IP address and
many in competion with each other.  As a line of reasearch, this is
somewhat fruitless.  And it is doubtful anyone would really care --
anyone who is tech savey enough to know how use dig, whois, etc. knows
how BIND and Apache work and know all about virtual hosting, etc.
