And that's where Paul Stahura's proposal comes in.
Thans to Denise, here's the link to the proposal:
http://www.gnso.icann.org/mailing-lists/archives/registrars/msg03062.html, the doc is whitepaper.doc, in attachment to the mesage.


So, does everybody more or less agree that there's a whole bunch who, even if they do not pay direct costs, have indirect costs in terms of additional work, loss of opportunity (to buy a name that is in the grace limbo, for instance), more complicated situation (loss of time = loss of money), etc.?

Cheers,

No, the registries are paying for it.  The advertisers are paying he
speculators, but that doesn't defray anyone else's costs.  There is a
significant unfunded cost that the registries say they bear from the huge
numbers of unpaid register/cancel pairs for every domain they keey.

Good point.
