I think the Wikipedia item needs updating but I am not the one to do it.
Consider, that we do not have laws for the theft of a wallet, a cell phone,
a sailboat, etc., we have a law against theft.  Society has always been slow
to accept that pre-Internet laws can sometimes work well for post-Internet
property if one is not afraid -  now that many judges grew up in the
Internet age, they are less afraid.  We also have quite a number of new laws
that are aimed at domain names and data hijacking.

We appear to differ then on whether absent resolution by, or
non-resolution to (as there are marks which are registered as domains
for which no resolution is sought by the registrant), any public, a
public interest exists.

If this is the case, would it be fair to characterize your view as
being that every string generated under the old letters-digits-hyphen
rule, or the two (newer and newest) valid IDN characters rule, having
length less than 63 octets, is of equal public interest upon the act
of registration?

If so, is this public-interest-upon-registration present in all

Can symbolics.com be distinguished from any of the registrations made
while you read this? Can panix.com?
