on one hand what you say Bruce makes sense, however on the other hand it
does not. Consider that most of the domains that are allowed to expire are
generally registered by Speculators. If a speculator registrant notices that
someone else is interested in their domain name and has a WLS subscription
on it they may actually renew the domain name and not let it expire, which
is against what we are trying to achieve here.
Maybe instead if there exists a query to allow a Registrar to find out if
there exists a WLS subscription through EPP (which would xist), a Registrar
could put it in their Whois discretionarily (if they chose to) instead of
making it compulsory on Verisign-grs.com.
