Randy is perfectly right in expressing his concerns about the registry
system that we've built (as long as its on a mailing list which supports
the topic), since we're doing a function on behalf of the entire Internet
community and spending everyone's money in the process.  While it may not
matter to him a bit, I'll defend his (and anyone's else right) to critique 
the quality and cost effectiveness of the job we're doing.
