They were right. The testbed was a testbed. It should not give any
rights to the registrant. Otherwise, any operation sold as a "test"
(for instance, to gain more acceptance) could lead to the entrenchment

It would make sense, yes.
Stability between standards: if RFC 3490 is one day updated or
replaced by another, we expect that the registrants of RFC3490 domains
will be offered some form of free upgrade. We expect that they will
not loose anything just because IETF evolved.
But there is no reason to guarantee any stability between experiments
and the real stuff. That's what experiments are for. (ICP-3 gives
details about that, although this document is not often quoted because
the pro-domo speech of ICANN is annoying.)
