How about this... Let each registrar choose what it prefers.  Maintain the 
existing auto-renew for those of us who like that, but let those who prefer 
auto-delete select that as an option.  This is just engineering; I see no 
reason this could not be done.

I certainly didn't mean to imply that we should not be responsible for 
mistakes.  But if we can choose the consequences, let's take the lesser 
ones ;-)
