I think not. Every corner case doesn't need a specific policy IMHO.  

If we make specific policies about every situation, then it may tie
the hands of the NIC staff somewhere down the line. I think it best to
maintain a general set of guidelines for flexibility sake.

TENET showed good netizenship here, if we have a "swamp policy", maybe
it will inhibit others from doing the same.

Having said that, I am willing to listen to anything you may have in
mind in re policy text.
