My opinion:

It's a simple case of INA protecting their butt.  But with good

XYZ Co is approved for and starts a highly successful
e-business. After 6 months trading is wanted by a trademark
owner of XYZ, a third party.  They take XYZ Co to court and win the right
to  XYZ Co's successful business is gone without the domain
it was based around, don't you think they would be after someone to blame?
The registar who let them have the domain?? Yeah, lets get 'em.

I agree that a lot of change is about in and .com.  All of .au for
that matter. But stayed tuned.  Although no one likes the rules to change
during the game, I think a lot of these changes are going to stop lawyers
getting rich from disorganised policy.  They'll get rich elsewhere I'm
sure. :)
