This is probably at the nub of my long term argument that resellers should be and act 
as though they were agents for the registrant only. If the margin (brokerage?) offered 
by a Registrar is not sufficient to make a profit then a disclosed service fee can be 
added. It is then up to the registrant to decide if the total cost of the domain and 
service is fair.
