As frustrating as it can be to deal with InterNIC, objectively it
should be noted that:
(1) Your proposal would be costly to enforce because it would be
necessary to determine whether the registrant submitted a correctly
formed template so that culpability could be determined.
(2) It wasn't that long ago that two-week processing was standard for
a lot of domain transactions. They raised the bar on themselves by
improving turnaround time through automatic processing. I'm not sure
that they should now have to pay a price for that.
