OTOH the process has worked; the registrar made a poor decision (for 
some reason, possibly just an error, possibly not); the group quickly 
pointed out that the decision was flawed; the registrar retracted the 
decision. We all make mistakes from time to time; the process has 
successfully guarded against this one. And as Addison pointed out there 
is yet another safeguard in the process (the appeals process) that has 
not been used. I would prefer to let the matter drop.
