    Nominet state in the Q&A:

    If we use their figure of 10,560,000, then 10,137,600 domain registrants have already qualified for .uk outright (the determination was made on 28 October 2013).

    A further 422,400 registrants will be in contention. Since contention requires a minimum of 2 conflicting domains, that means that an absolute maximum of 211,200 domain registrants out of 10,560,000 (2%) won't get a .uk.

    However,

    A) Nominet said "over 96%" and "fewer than 4%" so the real picture will be better than that
    B) Some contention sets will have 3+ conflicting domains, so the real picture will be better than that

    Worth noting that all the discussions we've had surrounding "oldest first", ".co.uk first" etc. relate to those 211,200 or fewer domains.

    Ref on numbers

    The V2 .uk background document stated;

    As you have mentioned above maximum 250,000 domain conflicts, but my research showed 30% of those where .org.uk and .co.uk joint ownership.

    Interesting to see V3 .uk take on the difference in Q & A.

    So that makes the number of edge cases even smaller. Assuming that 30% maps across the board then there are only approx. 140,000 registrants who won't get the .uk to match their main domain.
