The problem that got us here was that registrars have
historically been not flexible enough at releasing
domains when the owners *did* want to transfer them.

What you are saying, is that you want to have either
a level of service at registrars, or a new registrar
with the additional level of service, that instead of
being easy to deal with in moves, is designed to maximally
ensure safe handling of your important corporate identity.

I think this is a clear and wonderful business opportunity.
Just expect to pay more for it...
