I think we're trying to prevent a similar scenario that happened with
invalid whois complaints a while back.

Some trademark-related service providers were sending automated
mass-complaints against large numbers of domain names to ICANN and
registrars. One per domain, but often hundreds if not thousands;
submitted by a script. This is a scenario I'd like to see avoided here.

Another nuance about these providers is that while they may have been
authorized by the trademark holder to obtain the domains, the companies
were neither law-firms nor were the emails send directly by people
working for the trademark holder.
