The downside of a registrar with really tight policies about spam, copyright, and trademark issues is that they sometimes shoot first and ask questions later. I.e., they could turn off your domain in response to an unfounded complaint by a competitor, disgruntled customer, etc. I've heard of people moving away from GoDaddy for exactly that reason. It's a balancing act for registrars - they need to respond to legitimate problems, but have to be very careful when they take action to ensure such action is justified by the facts.
