Not aimed at your suggestion about eligible registrant transfers,
Bruce. Domain name speculation is cybersquatting, it's only the Yanks
who have defined it in terms of trademark violation. As I've said
before, it's the "squatting" part that's contrary to the public
interest (IMHO) and current policy.

Unlike the lunar right, I'm amenable to an evidenced-based argument.
There can probably be degrees of a clean secondary market, and
economic modelling can prove it's in the public interest.
