people have been preregistering business names for years. at one point
all shelf companies where pre formed and had names and probably still are.
where was the uproar?

there was even an avalanche of business name registrations for the sole
purpose when domains required a business name. where was the uproar?

I had to pay a premium for my mobile number because it had lots of
doubles in it.  is that a conflict of interest by the phone company?
where was the uproar over that?

registrars are not government depts, nor agents for the government.
