I understand.

My point is that if the WG was unable to reach a consensus, then  
registrars would not be able to do so either, so what we'll have is an 
"anything goes" situation.

At the least, we (software developers, sys admins, website owners, 
advertising companies, users, etc.) need to be aware of the problems.
