Subject: Problems with this fix

Message:
 

 
Alas, the suggested fix to the crs/domebase proposal has some problems:

1.  Not very elegant.

2.  Under what contractual provision are registrars obligated to program up a warning?

3.  What of newcomers who have no idea what the Sunrise controversy is about?   Will they have any idea what this warning means?

4.  What about the newcomers who have been turned away for the past 24 days? 

5.  What about validly issued Sunrise registrations (which, one would hope, make up at least 50% of what has been issued).  The suggested warning does not deal with this.  Can't imagine a "preregister at your own risk to valid trademark rights" warning.  Seems rather inelegant (getting back to point 1).
