Let me throw in an analogy.

Would anybody accept it if the Department of Consumer affairs, or an
accountant acting as their agent, pre-registered for themselves the business
name you might have been after or did a search on, on the premise that it
could be more valuable to them than it is to you?

There would be an uproar, and rightly so.

Equally there would be an outcry were the existing business name
registration process to be de-regulated to allow such "tasting" to occur.

It seems to me that some who advocate the removal of controls are those who
would most benefit from the newly-legal right to abuse their absence.  As
much as I resist regulation, anarchy is definitely not an acceptable
