<DIV><FONT face="Comic Sans MS" size=2><STRONG>1. Correction of typographical 
errors made by registrant. </STRONG>Double Opt-In or a verification process 
built into the website can take care of this completely and provides less 
hassle for everyone than canceling and re-registering a domain name. The low 
cost of domain names also means that registering the wrong name and having to 
go back and get another one is really not going to make or break most 
people.</FONT></DIV><FONT face="Comic Sans MS" size=2>
<DIV><BR><STRONG>2. Cart "hold" to provide access to domain names 
</STRONG>Explain this one for me. This is a total non-issue and not necessary 
at all.</DIV>
<DIV><BR><STRONG>3. Fraud remedies </STRONG>The 5-day Grace period does not 
address this issue. Registrars and Registries can deal with credit card fraud 
like everyone else on the web.</DIV>
<DIV><BR><STRONG>4. Monitoring, testing and development of systems. 
</STRONG>Give me a break. No real systems are tested or developed using the 5 
day grace period. You mean to tell me there are companies who are going to 
spend hundreds or thousands of dollars to do testing and development but do not 
want to pay the $10 for the domain name during the process? Please give me some 
examples of companies doing this so I can contact them about becoming their 
business consulatant because I can definitely do a better job than whoever they 
have now. The 5-day grace period does allow for tasters and kiters to test the 
domain names and develop a garbage webpage to do so. So #4 is pretty much for 
domain taster testing and development. I guess that is why #4 is here.</DIV>
<DIV><BR><STRONG>5. Addressing Registrant 'Buyer's Remorse' </STRONG>Double 
Opt-in or secondary verification handles this just fine. Or, the registrar is 
welcome to create their own policy of giving refunds to there consumers if they 
drop the name back into the pool. But I guess the registrars don't want to 
create their own buyer's remorse policy like other companies have to. A 
registrar or registry could create a policy that gives the user another domain 
name to replace the one they decided they did not want after all. Plus what is 
the percentage of domains dropped for this reason VS the percentage of domains 
dropped because of tasting and kiting? Nominal, therefore a pretty moot
