As others have pointed out, any procedures will need to ensure that they
can be applied to all domain name records.

I doubt that was "LOCKED" at the registry, as the transfer
could not have been initiated.
Some registrars use the term "lock" to refer to an internal security
procedure that is unrelated to a lock that can be placed on the name in
the registry.

Note that different registries have different locking mechanisms.
