[registration-issues-wg] Registrars as Censors

Um, well, they can summarily act under [a] general provision[s] of the
Terms of Service disapproving of things like incitement, antisocial
behaviours and such.

The NCUC's position tends to a blanket restraint on any action by the
registrar; the ToS may not be utilised for such actions, especially if it
results - or tends to result - in decisions pertaining [web] content.

The EFF's position is a little more nuanced:
it is worried about lack of due process and accountability in the first
instance and the incursion of certain inalienable rights, like freedom of
speech. So they promote a process that they feel would make the action
accountable
