This general technique for enforcing charters has been suggested many
times, for literally years. See, for example, the discussion of
chartered TLDs on the PAB list, archived at
http://joy.songbird.com/pab/mail/0792.html there is a sample charter for
the proposed ".shop" TLD; the charter was enforced through the dispute
resolution scheme du jour:
3. In any dispute as to the registration of a particular name, the
registrar shall have no role or responsibility, other than to
provide the contact information for all parties, and abide by the
results of the appeals process. Appeals are taken by following the
current process designated by the gTLD-MoU -- the Administrative
Domain Name Challenge Panels.
Even though this basic model has been in the public domain for
literally years, we still get the same flak that charters will never
work because they will be too expensive to enforce...
