Are you sure this is worth the effort?

To a large extent the development and enforcement of good
naming policies for and the like has rested with
your subjective assessment of each application against the
broad policies for each domain.  This has allowed the
rejection of names simply because they are "bad" for the
structure of the DNS or are plain silly names.

Documenting these subjective criteria into bullet-proof
objective criteria would possibly be more painful than the
continued operation of the current system.

You only have to compare the utility of names in and with those in and to find that
subjective assessment by a cluefull individual has been
superior to the objective criteria used in the commercial

If it's a question of workload, then perhaps nominating a
co-registrar with more spare time is appropiate?

It seems a shame to let the commercial-domain diseases
spread to other domains.
