There would have to be some clearly stated basis for the resolution
of such disputes. Why couldn't that be applied directly at the
point of registration?

What is the traditional sponsored model? The first time the literal
notion of the CEDRP appeared was in the draft sponsorship agreement
for .museum, which was also the first of the sponsored TLDs. This is
hardly ancient history and, in fact, the details of CEDRP
implementation remain to be established.
Since I've been blamed for introducing terminology that was
subsequently criticized into this TF's deliberations, I may as
well fess up right now about being the one who first mentioned the
CEDRP here. If I recall correctly the general response was, "what
the *%#!* is a CEDRP?" Since nothing has happened in the interim to
define the term further, how has it acquired the aspects that are
now being ascribed to it? Not that I feel the notion to be
inappropriate to newORG, but I'm not sure I understand how and to
what the requisite flexibility is to be applied.
