RE: [registrars] Transfers from up the reseller tree

Not sure I understand the example Bob, but let me take a crack at it.

Current Situation:
The losing registrar (and therefore *all* of its downstream
relationships) can reject a transfer for any reason whatsoever.

Transfer TF Proposal:
The losing registrar (and therefore *all* of its downstream
relationships) can only reject a transfer for very specific reasons.

Under the TF proposal, if the losing registrar isn't holding up its end
of the deal, the gaining registrar (in this case, you) would be able to
force settlement of the issue through a third party dispute resolution

Hope this helps,
