What happens if a domain name gets trademarked *after* the domain
name is assigned?  Shouldn't the holder of the domain name be
allowed to keep it?

I couldn't tell from the post what the policy would be, and whether
the "bottom line" at the moment is really that everyone needs to
trademark their domain names if they want to protect them.
