Thanks Michael, I like  "account holder" is best description for this
individual or 




I would also like to extend on two more players:


RESELLER and SERVICE PROVIDER. They complicate the situation and are
mentioned in the SSAC reports. 


One of the possible matrix of hijack situations is when a service provider
(eg. amateur web designer) becomes the account holder and the registrant of
the domain. The business does not realize that it does not own the domain it
paid for until it has a dispute with the service provider. 



RESELLER is an organization that offers domain name registration services to
a REGISTRANT under a reseller agreement with a REGISTRAR. 


SERVICE PROVIDER is an organization that offers domain name registration
amongst other internet services to a client (without contracts with
registrars or resellers). The SERVICE PROVIDER may be the ACCOUNT HOLDER,
but acting on behalf of a client may be authorized by their ?service
provider terms and conditions? to accept the Registration Agreement on the
client?s behalf and become the registered NAME HOLDER. 


I appreciate this now introduces a ?client?.  Anybody help develop this

I think the proxy name service becomes a service provider. 


When there is no written ?service provider terms and conditions? it becomes
more difficult to establish the NAME HOLDER and hence a domain hijack
