Hmm... AFAIK this is pretty much what happens with business and other 
types of licensing, ie. you must continue to operate a business or do 
whatever is required for the license, eg. reside at that address, etc. or 
advise any changes, with such changes possibly precluding you from 
continuing with or renewing that license.

I guess most are simply not too worried about license renewals because 
although such policies are in place they are not policed often.

being in place in the event of a dispute but not being policed and 
scrutinised for each and every domain registration renewal.

It's a balance between risk management and the cost of policing the 
policies don't you feel?

With your immigration example what happens if the applicant is found to 
have lied on application even several years after being accepted and 
living in Australia? I'm not sure to be honest... but getting back to 
domain registration renewals I don't think any of the eligibility criteria 
detailed at
