Why are they (potentially) being blocked at all ?

What's the justification for denying (real examples) customers I have of
John Laos
from registering laos.(something) - the .com is up for some silly amount 
of money on sedo and he has his name in other tlds

and Samantha Keeling
from keeling.(something)

It's bad enough provisions were put in place for the IOC and 
RedCross/Lion/Sun/Crescent wihout any real precendent or legality - with 
Red Lion being the 2nd most popular pub name in the UK and Red Cross 
being the name of *thousands* of roads and locations throughout the
