Finally some sense.

So what you want to do is to abolish the need for a Stat. Dec. in the
transfer agreement, and replace it with a click-through/shrinkwrap style
agreement on an online form?

I'd agree to that, as long as they still have to tick a box and give a
reason for the transfer, so that if it is a bogus transfer of registrant,
the original registrant still has a way to get the registrant transfer
reviewed and reversed.

I think the domains should be able to be locked like the TLD's to prevent
domain theft, maybe with the new registry contract coming up this could be
added as a technical extra (Just a suggestion).
