How do you verify the identity? If a domain name is already registered, what value is there to the "identity" check? What identity are you verifying? The individual requesting the update? The company? What happens when you find yourself unable to navigate the County Clerk's office at 5:01PM to look up that fictitious name filing? If you want to establish identities, the time to do that is at registration time - not crunch time. Why not simply limit updates? As a method for stopping rapid update abuse, limits would seem to be highly effective. Possible policy: You get two "instant updates" a month. This is sufficient to handle a change of nameserver, plus a correction for the inevitable error. Further updates are allowed once every two days, similar to past policy. Or maybe even less. If you need more "instant updates," you pay a fee to the registrar, who can be made to have an interest in making sure that the transaction is not a fraud. ...
