Subject: where does it say?

   Richard-you mention rules and contract.  Where does it say that registrars were not allowed to register sunrise names? 

A check of Google reveals that Grabensee is a trademark lawyer.  (http://www.grabensee.com)  Maybe he registered names for his clients, like other lawyers. 

Afilias's site says "Each registrar was allowed to reserve up to ten (10) names under the terms spelled out in Exhibit E, Section V.5 of the Registry-Registrar Agreement that is part of ICANN's agreement with Afilias."  These names were reserved before Startup started, so the registrars could register their site names in .info and no one could squat on them.  Logical, although it looks like some registrars used to opportunity to register some names that have nothing to do with their registration buisinesses. 

Can't find anything that prevented registrars from participating in Sunrise like anyone else.  Have you seen anything?
