I don't think so, except.....

every third message, we come up with some new version of "we'd like the 
function to behave like this", like the above. And unless it's part of the 
registry/registrar/ICANN function, we have no influence on how it's set up.

My gut feeling is that we're better off not requiring 
ICANN/registry/registrar involvement in the notification function. But it's 
a tradeoff.
