Paul,  I don't know where the poster got his information.  But landrush/round-robin is a use it or lose it deal.  I.e., if a name is already taken, that basically forfeits the registrar's turn:

"Afilias will process domain name requests using a round-robin mechanism such that no more than one registration request per round-robin will be processed for any registrar, whether such registration request is accepted or not"

However, as I understand it, a registar's queue basically gets "built" at Afilias, and this involves a domaincheck program.  That program eliminates from the queue any names previously registered during Sunrise.

As the end result, queues should contain only those names not previously registered, regardless of what the registrar does.
