I know for a fact that this can be confusing for registrants and happens in both thick and thin registries who autorenew domains at expiration. But, as I said before, I haven't looked extensively into this extension and the reasons for it yet, and there may be a easier or better way to remove the possible confusion.

It doesn’t have to be this way.

A RAR can model the registry policy and auto-renew the name in its database, or keep the dates in sync via EPP <info> commands. There’s nothing that says that the expiration date has to remain in the past until the customer pays for it, the RAR has other means to inform its customer that the service has expired.
