This used to happen in the UK under the old Naming Committee regime. A
customer would get refused by ISP-1 and then went around until finding
ISP-n who agreed to put forward the application. As the whole thing was
collaborative, this essentially allowed individual ISP's to apply the
policy as they saw  fit.

Far better to have a single entity enforcing rules.

The gTLD CORE could operate ashared registry because names were to be
granted on a FCFS basis, so no CORE member was creating policy.
