It should be the registries responsibility to keep their registrars in
line. If they fail to do so their delegation should be transferred

Of course, to impose decent rules you'd need a root-operator whose
primary goal is to act in the community's best interest with contractual
terms subject to public scrutiny.

You'd have to make some real draconian rules not to have anybody wanting
to operate popular TLDs.

Was DNS designed as a tool for internet-protocol users, or was it
intended as a mechanism to distribute access to revenue-sources?
