I believe that the policy is to remove orphan glue, and the glue in the Afilias zones is due to software bugs. It's not just .org, it's also ..info and .mobi and other zones they manage directly.

There were historical reasons why glue was not removed on various occasions, on 
purpose.  So I doubt it's just bugs.  I know there was a policy decision 
sometime around 05 or 06 that caused orphan glue to be removed, because I wrote 
the database  code for it.  That is, by the way a good reason to suppose that 
bugs could be part of the problem!
