Let us not open this debate again, please.  We have explicitly decided
that confusability is not a criterion for acceptability.  Just because
registries can act badly is not a reason to set protocol rules, and we
have been quite clear that we expect registries to have a policy (even
if that expectation is likely to be unrealised in practice).
