Just a small datapoint..

Yesterday, I received failure notification on 4 domains that I had 
registered this past Monday. Failed to authenticate PGP signature.
I sent them 3 more times through the course of yesterday and finally
got them to go through on the 3rd attempt.

The big issue I have been going through with the InterNIC lately is
that a FAX from the supposed holding company of the domain will 
override the PGP lock.

When it works here, it takes less than an hour to get a registration
through. When it works...
