I really can't think of any domain name registrant that this statement
doesn't apply to -- even the spammers.

<shrug>  The purpose is so that someone can do all the "paperwork" for when

The alternative is dealing with VGRS directly, and with apologies to the Verisign employees here who I'm sure aren't directly responsible for some of the extremely net-unfriendly activities Verisign has perpetrated lately, I wouldn't want to deal with the company myself.
