    So if those same secondary market domain holders put sites on each of their domains, would that result in more domains being available for those respondents who argued about the problem, no.

    The vast majority of these 'desirable' names that are held by the secondary market are still available for sale, just for a higher price, because they are desirable. If the owners let them drop, they would be snapped up in a second, and i'm sure the average Joe wouldn't be able to register them for a few quid.

    Choice still exists, more so as the portfolio domain is in a position to be sold. As a portfolio owner I desire good domains but I don't wish to dethrone legitimate owners.

    I doubt that they would want you to demonstrate 'intent to use' before you are allowed to register a domain. Restriction on domain reselling would mean GREATLY reduced income for the Registrars and Nominet!
