That is certainly up to the TLD manager(s).  You might suggest that to NSI and all other registrars. :)  It is not about to happen, since by the time the zones are set up for dns, the name will be gone.

Really.  So an ISP who is setting up additional servers cannot use them for two years?  I don't think so.

Not likely, since there are some areas that don't even have more than one available.

Again, that is up to the registry/registrars.

Dream on.

There are much easier ways to discourage speculation, but I won't bother...
