Yep... if you want to take that route, since you're officially listed as the registrant it's your domain. You could contact the registrar and arrange to make any changes you want, get the passwords to make changes, etc. If you're only the registrant and admin contact, some registrars might require confirmation from the another contact -- but not all of them do.
Not that it'd be right of course. But it's an option.
