Sure it works.  I did one recently with Connect.com for a .net.au domain
name.  I was an old name with perpetual life.  By doing the Terminate and
Re-Apply (let's call it TAR) I lost the eternal life and, as the domain name
owner, now have to pay renewal fees every two years like everybody else.

But I got the domain name !!

As far as "no promises" it depends on how you trust the staff.  I lodged the
new application first then bought the name off of the current owner.  I then
got him fax in the termination form.  That slightly covered me by putting me
first in the queue.

I have had a problem with INWW and lost a domain name as a result.  I
understand that this caused them to amend their procedures in relation to
"Expressions of Interest".

Patrick
