If anyone is transferring domains without the explicit consent of the
domain's registrant, then clear breaches of policy would appear to be
occurring, and AuDA ought to be very interested.  Similarly, if anyone
is indeed withholding domain passwords from registrants, or anything
else denying registrants' rights to choose their own domain's registrar.

Others appear to prefer that domain registrants were kept in the dark.
