As a "consumer", I have a problem with this. I would rather see you get 
_explicit_ permission from your customer that you have the right to 
change their registrar (I assume that is what you meant?). Otherwise, 
your proposal sounds something very easily abused.

An email with a short opt-out time frame is ripe for abuse. Email is an 
unguaranteed medium, you could be sending the emails to the wrong 
address etc. It should be opt-in, not opt-out.

In these areas I definately think it is important to side with the 
consumer awareness rather than open loopholes.

(speaking for myself as usual)
