Thanks for the reply Chuck.

It depends on what you call effective and whether this is the main
consideration. One can argue that more than one registrant should have
a chance of getting a name once it expires.  Why should it be
guaranteed to one would be person/orgn?

I tend to think that registrants should not even know about if
possible or deal with the registry - their contact should all be
through Registrars and that this proposal has the registry taking on a
role which may negate this.

Even if there is a demand from registrants to be able to guarantee
they are next in line to get a domain name (is there any documented
demand?) I would rather the registrars devise a collective scheme
where this can be done which they could then ask the registry to
implement by addition of a new field in the register.

Incidentally the charge to a registrar for using that field should be
something like $1 - $2 if such a scheme was implemented.
