This is a well-known problem that has been going on for years.
Here is story from Feb 1999 where it was discussed by me
http://news.cnet.com/news/0-1005-200-338892.html. The problem had
already existsted for quite some back then.
The solution is rather straighforward. You isolate the "grabbing"
system from the rest of registry system so normal business is not
affected. Then you implement a landrush system similar to what is
being used for some of the new TLD's. Of course it would have been
much cheaper to implement this at the start of the shared registry
system. To go back and try to fix it now will be much more expensive.
Among most of the average domain buyers I believe a "consensus"
existed years ago that the system should be corrected. However,
the people at Verisign are only concerned with the "consensus" of
their shareholders. Since there was no profit motive for doing
this it never was done.
