That's the part about "massive tweaks to software".....one would have to 
redesign the software to be able to handle the situation (I can think of 
some quick hacks, but a good redesign is better)

they would have a busy time, that's for sure. Some would probably offer "no 
cure-no pay" registrations and eat the costs of the failed ones; others 
would offer discounts on registrants attempting more than 10.000 names at 
once; others would refuse to do business at all in the initial 48 hours, 
saying it is too much trouble.....

I haven't figured out what (except for "business as usual") could be 
"registrar friendly" yet. I'd be reasonably happy with 
first-come-first-served + UDRP + normal recourse to courts of law - that 
is, no special treatment of the initial period at all.

But since we've somehow landed back in the idea-generating phase, and 
somehow left the concept of famous marks altogether (good riddance!), it 
seemed like a good idea to toss in a few more ideas.
