this was discussed during the WIPO Experts' meeting too (and, I'm sure, at
millions of other discussions).
The problem with requiring "use" is that the investment for setting up
something that looks like usage of the name is almost nil - the absolutely
cheapest is aliasing "www.<yourname>.com" to someone else's website, but
"domain parking" facilities are widely available too.
I sympathize - the Norwegian rules have a rule saying that a domain where
no listed nameserver is reachable and configured for the domain is recycled
after 3 months - but if the owner has just a slight interest in keeping it,
it is almost impossible (IMHO) to make a forfeit clause stick.
Apart from that, I liked the model!
