It's going to be very interesting to see how things go next June with the supposed release of all the Fasthosts and 1&1 Ionas mass-registered .uk names. There are tens of thousands, that will be released en masse if they are true to their word. And there are so many good names that in a way it will become like a second RoR release event, like this years (slightly smaller scale, but still very significant list of names). I know, because I've been collating them. There are so many domains I would definitely want. Will they be released? Will there be a second year of mass registration 'to protect people's brands'? How will they be released? Will Nominet institute a catching process for them, with two levels of release a week apart? Or will they just expire normally and everyone gets ready for the surge?
