With all due respect, the data by Jeff may be useful rhetorical
tools -- but they certainly don't prove anything; extrapolation
based on these data looks like risky business.  What about
registrars obtaining new accreditations? What about registrars
trying out different business models?  What about registrars getting
a little more wiggle room for competing?

But anyway, let's, for the moment, assume your interpretation of the
data is currect.  How would this justify *not* minimizing
registry-to-registrar pricing, all other things equal?  How would it
justify giving carte blanche to bidders for proposing nebulous
"enhancements" that then lead to higher registry-level pricing?
