Can someone tell me what the costs are to Afilias if they do as they have said they would - challenge those suspicious registrations that are brought to their attention, but not challenged by a TM holder? 

Is filias up for a big bill if it has to undertake a large number of challenges?

Would changing the rules as appears to be the case encourage non-TM holders to have a go at a challenge - and so diminish the number of challenges that Afilias would otherwise have to undertake.

On that last point - as I now expect nothing but the worst from Afilias - watch for Afilias's lack of enthusiasm in initiating challenges.

I have a feeling that a number of bona fide Sunrise fraudsters will keep their valuable ill-gotten  names.
