All because you can't assert any degree of "greater rights" to the domain name? You wish.
Can you possibly provide a logical, reasonable and fair explanation as to why you're entitled to it more than the registered owner is? Before you post your answer, I suggest you "research" a little more and give it a long deep thought because this issue's been discussed a gazillion times, especially by those who came too late into the game.
If you looked at the history of domain name registration, there was only one registrar that time who allowed people to register domain names. And it's only with that registrar where some parties were able to grab 2, 3, and a couple of 4-character domain names.
Heck, there were a few that were registered even long before domain name registration was opened to the public. But come to think of it, it's too bad they didn't do what you just suggested. :D
If you yourself can come up with credible, logical, and reasonable "metrics" that's beneficial to all parties concerned, then I'll support you. Otherwise, as you say it's only a wish.
I'll probably be philosophical for saying this, but there have been numerous opportunities I lost simply because I came too late. But I've yet to lose sleep over them since new ones crop up, and I just gotta prepare as much as I can.
