Quite a few of them don't have a clearly defined pre-registration process (Signature domains for instance).

I think our intention here is to formulate general positions as to what we perceive as a fair Landrush process. We then have to get some sort of an oficial Afilias position on these concerns.  

Right now, it's a very messy situation because today you don't know if a registrar shows a name as being taken because it has been reserved on their queues or because a whois search is showing it as being taken? In the latter case if Afilias does acknowledge the current solution (see domebase.com) then those registrars will have an almost empty list.

Dotster.com is one of those that seem to be caught in limbo, they had a highest-bidder-makes-the-list type of deal, which they subsequently purged from all names alloted during Sunrise.

It is an absolute mess and yet through it all, Afilias has chosen to maintain absolute silence!!!!
