The same argument may be used for businesses wishing to purchase or have an
existing domain name transferred to them.  They could just think of a new one
also and build their business around it rather than relying on the name to do
some of their work for them.

No one "has" to have a particular name.  It is a want rather than a need.  I
suppose that aspect does work for having a free market.  You do make some good
points Jon.
