[CPWG] Reflections on registry agreement renewals

The recent discussion on this topic has made me reflect on the topic more
broadly and I'd like to share something provocative I've been pondering.

At the broadest level, domain reselling and all speculation surrounding
domain names should be outlawed outright. ICANN doesn't as a rule tell end
users how to (not) use their domains. However there is an argument to be
made that speculative behaviour hurts all non-speculative users by
increasing pricing.
