Just looking at the Zonefile access specs ...

"3.1. Zone File Access Agreement. Registry Operator will enter into an 
agreement with
any Internet user that will allow such user to access an Internet host server 
or servers
designated by Registry Operator and download zone file data."

While it's good that registry operators give access to zonefiles surely they 
should be able to refuse access to abusers? While that is covered in 3.4 it 
would make sense to me at least to reference 3.4 in 3.1

"3.3. Grant of Access. Registry Operator will grant the User a nonexclusive, 
limited right to access Registry Operator’s Server, and to transfer a copy of
the top-level domain zone files, and any associated encrypted checksum files to 
Server no more than once per 24 hour period using FTP or HTTP."

Why specify the exact protocols available? 

It would seem to be saner to not mention the specifics of how the transfer was 
enabled (rsync for example would probably make more sense in some cases, as 
it's already used for DNS blacklist transfers)
