Andrew, from personal experience, I would beg to differ with you.   Registries most definitely are not doing any such thing.   

As far as I can see, very few, if any, policies are in effect.   I have seen and been able to buy domains (with the full knowledge and consent of the trademark holder) that one would not believe possible.

I have seen, from my monitoring that many others have bought domains which I suspect are NOT with the full knowledge and consent of the trademark holder or as a part of a bundle.
