Hypothetically, that would be very nice.  Meanwhile, on the actual 
Internet, registrars routinely turn down thousands of domains every day 
just to keep up with the pillz, phish, and other crimeware.  There's 
certainly room for improvement, but to me it's impressive that they screw 
up as infrequently as they do.
