That's an interesting opinion...

As I recall, when kre was in charge of registrations the
rules were even tougher. He insisted on there being an organisation
which fitted in no other 2LD as the main requirement. I think it's
erroneous to suggest that this would imply that some individual
would become the "owner" of the domain. In any case, all pre-2002 domains have since required renewal, and it has been my
experience that registrars demand that the auDA policy be complied
with for renewal.

It seems that netregistry have responded now, so I guess its between
them and Jason.
