Subject: There is a remedy in place

Its too late to say that .info should start all over. I mean theres only at the most about 100 suspicious sunrise registrations. And theres a procedure already in place (the sunrise challenge) to address this. I know it costs $295 to dispute a sunrise registration and if its found to be an invalid registration, the challenger does not get the name - it goes back into the pool for anyone to register (this is fair, otherwise you would have an overload of challenges from domain speculators who would think nothing of gambling $295 to get a shot at the most valuable names). Unless of course you actually have a valid trademark, then you would get it.

So who would submit challenges then? Well groups (such as the alternate roots - who do enough whining but never take any actions)who want to show the flaws in ICANN could do so for the most valuable names. This would be good media coverage for them. Or people who who have made a lot of money from domain speculation. This would be there way of giving back something. So you see, if its significant enough, any discrepancies will easily be sorted out by the provisions for doing so already in place.
