Yes it is interesting isn't it? That while the rightful authority for the
policy creation for a TLD rests solely in the hands of the TLD Holder,
those who ride such coattails (registrars) would seek to direct the policy
decisions of the TLD Holder.

Not that the Registrars shouldn't seek such authority or speak their mind,
but the symbiotic relationship between the two is of the type
commensulism - not mutualism.
