b) Whether additional provisions for undoing inappropriate transfers are
needed, especially with regard to disputes between a Registrant and Admin
c) Whether special provisions are needed for a change of registrant when it
occurs near to the time of a change of registrar
d) Whether standards or best practices should be implemented regarding use
of Registrar Lock status
e) Whether, and if so, how best to clarify denial reason #7: A domain name
was already in 'lock' status provided that the Registrar provides a readily
accessible and reasonable means for the Registered Name Holder to remove the
lock status
