My understanding is that the precise protocol used to register a new name
has not been frozen yet. This issue can be addressed if CORE requires a
non-repudiable transaction from a registrar in order to register a domain
or to update its payment status.

And even if the IAHC were so foolish as to not consider this possibility
they certainly did create a Policy Oversight Committee that can change
procedures at any time.
