The URS sounds interesting and I'll admit I have not studied it in dept yet.
I have attached a screenshot from eNom's site which not only lists bulk
options by dynamically suggests domains with related keywords and trademarks
I have also attached a screenshot from Moniker's site which adds the keyword
"100mg" to proposed domains indicating they know what the customer is
Not saying this is all Registrars, I did not find the same issue at
