For some value of "correct". I think the value of "correct" there
will depend to some extent on what the contracts specify, which is
why I think there is some value in addressing it in our report. I
don't want to beat a dead horse, however, and it isn't of
particular concern to me (since this is really a problem for
registrars, not registries). If no-one else thinks this is an issue,
I'm happy to leave it alone.

I don't see how it's jumping to conclusions about anything to note
that a recommendation may contradict an existing and related
policy. It seems to me that such an inconsistency is related to
whether something is implementable: if people have actual contracts
which they would have to adjust in order to conform with some
recommendation, it's certainly at least an additional cost in
implementing the recommendation.
As I say, however, this case is not a big deal for me.
