If you read the fine print on the InterNIC application for changing
domain names, the InterNIC reserves the right to review the entire
application as a new application if the change requests a change
to the Organization information.

Therefore, a straightforward attempt to transfer a .COM domain name
to another entity results in a new application for that name. This
makes it smoother to do coordinated transfers, but if InterNIC
re-considers the transfer it makes the rights about what Sean said 
he would bid in an earlier message. ($1)

By the way, domain names are not uniquely speculated. About two 
years ago, a company widely circulated an offer to sell 
1-800-INFO-HIWAY for about US$20,000. I passed.
