> an aggrieved party who has been severely financially disadvantaged

Only disadvantaged in the fantasy world where registrars are entitled to rake in profits from utterly pointless domain names. Morally, they have no such entitlement - those profits are entirely parasitic. Being aggrieved because somebody won't grant you the right to be a parasite doesn't get any sympathy from me. But actually there's plenty of Schadenfreude to go around - have a laugh at DOT for not getting their cosy monopoly, have a laugh at ICANN for experiencing the downside of its absurd capitalist expansion of ASCII domain names.
