My solution is to do nothing about such auctions.  I don't really have a
problem with the onsale of domain names.  But if it is going to be
allowed, it has to be acknowledged, perhaps the incorporated into the
code of conduct for Registrars, Resellers and Registries.  That is where
abuse of any resale of domains may occur, with hoarding of deleted names

In a UDRP action it is used to show a bad faith registration and it is
up to the party making the allegation to prove the registration was in
bad faith and the domain was purchased with the sole intention of
selling it.  Not always easy.  But it does put the onus on those who
contest the sale of the domain.
