] Why and How to Rent a Domain Name
] Renting a domain name from someone who's already registered it
] sometimes can be an attractive (or the only) option available if you
] want to use it. Doing so can be cost-effective, particularly if your
] need is only temporary or if you want to gain the benefits associated
] with a pre-existing domain name. This article explains how renting a
] domain name works and what should be included a contract for a domain
] name rental.

I don't understand the basis of this.  I've read the article and
it talks about registrants "owning" domain names (they don't).

Perhaps the article should talk about "sub-leasing" a domain name,
but then what's the point of that?

It looks like an article written by a lawyer who doesn't know how
DNS registration systems work and is trying to solve a problem
that doesn't exist (or is extremely rare) in the DNS space by
a flawed analogy with real estate.
