Re: Suspension of reissuing deleted domain names

With regards the issue of prospectors trying to grab deleted domains,
perhaps the InterNIC should use a similar policy to what the FCC uses
for radio callsigns (amateur radio, at least): Callsigns which are
abandoned due to change of callsign, death, or expiration of the license
are unavailable for re-issue for two years. This allows for the previous
owner (if not dead) to reclaim the callsign (or a relative of the
deceased to do so). It also helps avoid identity confusion.

Seems like the same rules would make sense in the domain name context,
and would avoid problems where billing errors or other problems dealing
with the Internic could result in loss of a domain name.
