As the sub-registrar of one of those 800,000 domains, I can report that 
the confirmation mail has a link you have to click to confirm that you got 
it.  It is not a big deal.  If you don't click on the link in the original 
message, they send multiple reminders.

I strongly endorse everything that Evan said, and also reiterate that this 
is basically about money: registrars not wanting to spend anything to 
comply with the RAA that they and the registrants agreed to.
