'Domain tasting' has been shown to be used by domain registrars to
hold domains that have been searched for through 'whois' utilities,
such that the domain is then only available through that particular
registrar, often at an inflated price.

This practise is obviously anti-competitive and is abuse of the facility.

On the whole, genuine customers would benefit from the removal of the
'domain tasting' facility.
