Through what technical or social means would that be arranged?  TLD
registries have never had any control over their subregistries'
use of names that I know of; I should think it would have to be
implemented by contract between the registry and the subregistry,
and many existing subregistries might well balk.

A rose by any other name                            John Cowan
may smell as sweet,                       
but if you called it an onion                       cowan at
you'd get cooks very confused.          --RMS
