The same throttling you put forward for the drop times could be
implemented over the whole period. The argument doesn't support having
a fixed drop time as that increases the hammering.
If the names were dropped at random times throughout the 24/365 period
with no indication of when a specific name may be dropped (no known
expiry date/time) then any hammering becomes ineffective and redundant.
Limitations built into the system would also ensure no hammering can
occur and would put all players onto a more equal field where network
infrastructure would play a minimal part.
