mike, I have never seen one of these deals. that doesn't mean they don't exist, but does mean that they are NOWHERE near as frequent as you describe and are certainly not justification for a change in policy. there may be other reasons but this is certainly not one of them.

Here is the reality of the marketplace, all the Big Registries seek to cut deals with the Big Registrars to get priority placement on the pull down menus or tick boxes on the registrar's home page. Much like in the retail marketplace, there is a limited amount of premium shelf space on
that registrar's home page, and the big registries structure deals so
that premium shelf space goes to the established brands or those willing
to make it financially attractive to the registrars. The problem as
identified in Danny's most recent example, is that some registries are not-for-profit and serve small communities. Thus they have a slim chance
of ever appearing on GoDaddy's or TUCOWS homepage.
