What are you going to do when sleazy domainers start phishing you with 
fake messages from URS providers saying to turn their domains back on?

While I agree that it's silly to try and define all of the low level 
details, I don't think it's silly to give some thought to security issues 
like how the URS providers and registries recognize each other.
