I must agree with this although I need more time to research the proposal.
If the preemptive blocking is completely based ot the prior-used "strings"
rather than a case-by-case reassessment of the merit of the "claim" from
the trademark owner,  it could unfairly deprive a "currently"
legitimately-held domain name where the the domain name holder has acquired
or registered the pertinent trademark (in another class of good or another
jurisdiction) or become known under that name through use or promotion.

The arbitrary and manupulative disctinction between "policy" and
"implementation" should be addressed.

 But I don't know if my message cannot be sent out through the unworking
