If these processes and procedures are so well known, how come all those
lawyer guys think there is a problem?
The NSI "policy" ruled that rights registered with the US PTO were superior
to rights registered with the UK (or Egyptian, or Palestinian) PTO with
regards to registration in .com.
Following your principle of "locality" means that all registries and
registrars for a single domain must be located in a single jurisdiction, or
else there will be no coherent policy among them.
For the case of domains marketed as "global", I think that's unworkable,
unreasonable and unacceptable.
