There are already a mountain of accuracy obligations imposed by ICANN 
onto registrants - with the penalty being loss of a domain name, not to 
mention the UDRP and rapid takedown, or the "don't be bad' provisions in 
most registrar agreements - there is no need to add more.

Third party beneficiary rights have long been absent from the world of 

ICANN has long had a phobia of third party beneficiary rights.

Yet we saw what can happen when they are not present in the registerfly 
situation when ICANN sat on its hands and let everything crumble.
