My suggestion is that THIS is where there should be uniformity.  If all
registrars are mandated to follow the same procedure during the 45 day
window and delete names uniformly, we solve not only the "mistakes" but
also the hoarding issue.  This makes far more sense than to add yet another
layer of opportunity to manipulate the system by numerous parties

See above.  I suggest the 30 day hold period be mandated during the 45 day
window.  This plan also makes it far easier for the Registrar to "recover"
the name for thier registrant since it is still under thier control and
eliminates any extra burden on the registry to administrate this and also
any need to "charge an extra fee" to the registrar for "recovering" the name.
