Your likely right here Chuck.

The answer to you last question is really simple. FCFS!

However this is neither needed, especially at the registry level, nor is
it desired except by the registry(s). Ergo, such a proposal should be
vetted amongst the registrants and stakeholders before becoming a
best practice or put into practice. However I also recognize that
such may be considered by the registry and registrar industry as
over regulation and therefore resisted. It should also be understood
that the registry industry in particular should and will be able to
provide any service, such as this proposed one should they so choose.
