At least the "nic,rdds,whois,www"  domains should be contained in the WHOIS straight from the beginning, although only the "nic" domain would be in the DNS.

Maybe the SLA only kicks in once there are actually delegated domains? Unless they're doing a Start-Date Sunrise (e.g. FCFS Sunrise), then there won't be anything in their WHOIS database until Sunrise ends.

Are you using whois.nic.<TLD> or the WHOIS server mentioned at http://www.iana.org/whois?q=<TLD> ?

Anyways, since WHOIS is included in the SLA requirements of ICANN, this makes me also wonder when the SLA actually "kicks in", and, whether the SLAs are actually being measured right now by ICANN ...
