How I envisage that working is when a domain is registered,
the confirmation includes the information (and of course the ts&cs prior
to registration include the info)along the following lines:
"in the event that you do not renew your domain name prior
to expiry of its term, the domain name will lapse. The domain name
will not immediately cease to function or become available to others to
register. Instead there will be a period of [x/x-y] days during which
you will be able to reregister the domain name by paying the normal
registration fee to us. After that period, the domain will be deleted
and will no longer function, but there will be a period of 30 days during
which you will be able to redeem the domain name before it becomes generally
available for registration. If you redeem your domain name during this
period you will be charged an additional recovery fee. This recovery
fee is currently set at $z, however this price may vary from time to time
without notice to you. The price will be published on our website at
What we want is for registrants to know up front what the
score is, but this doesn't have to be in a way that the registrar is bound
by the price notified at the outset.

Apologies for sending this in late (too late?) A
3.1.6 Registrars should
provide, both at the time of
registration and in a
conspicuous place on their website, the fee
for the recovery of a domain name during the Redemption Grace
"at the time of registration" -- as names are registered for
a year, is there a risk in asking
registrars to commit to a fee so
far in the future?
I think "in a conspicuous place on their website"
fine and probably enough.
