So it's ok if we have a general scramble of domain name speculators at a future date, but it is unfair if people registered these names before you found out about it??? 

How is this morally distinguishable?  And how does this support the claim that a clean database would prevent speculating in domain names?

Finally, what is so bad about domain speculating?  If it's a trademark violation, then the law is on the side of the trademark holder.  If it is not, then you have no legal claim to it, and names are distributed on a first-come, first served basis.
