      Don't disagree with your position. Just adding to it. There is no justification for a registrar or registry for accepting, and/or awarding a registration based on a substantially defective sunrise application. Substantially defective being defined for working purposes here as materially devoid of required trademark data. Time consuming or not, a registrar or registry cannot charge a registration fee, as opposed to an application processing fee, when the registar and or registry had reason to believe that the registration that would result from their accepting and processing a substantially defective application is reasonably likely to be deemed invalid and slated for cancellation in a challenge proceeding initiated by the very same registry. To accept a registration fee under those circumstances would possibly amount to intentionally and/or knowingly accepting money under false pretences. Bottom line: the registrar and/or registry can't charge a registration fee and accept a substantially defective application knowing all along they intend to challenge and cancel the invalid registration arising from said application. The above is only opinion, may or may not be correct, may or may not reflect an actual situation and is meant only for entertainment and to foster discussion.
