nothing wrong with that if the registrant authorises the reseller to select a registrar
on their behalf is there? the policy badly needs reviewing currently it is setup to

transfer and queries every single transfer causing overhead for registrants, resellers
and competing registrars. 

the policy must be reviewed.
