Registrar and registry backend processes.
I think, briefly, that we need to force Verisign and the registrars to be FAR more public about the backend process for WHOIS data and for the TLD zone data. Especially with .com, .net, and probably .org, and this latest failure of 'the system' and the obvious lack of information on 'the system.'
It's clearly broken, and needs to be put up for public review by 'the powers that be' so that it can be fixed. What's happening now feels close to a boiler room poker game, noone seems to know all the players, and even fewer know all the rules, so in the end everyone is a loser.
I know this is adding fuel to the proverbial fire, but apparently we need to burn out this thing so we don't get scorched by yet another unexpected fire.
