If collisions don't matter then who cares?  Just add more collisions :)

Alternatively, how about:

   A third party should not claim to be the owner.
   The third party could specify an owner, but that should be considered
      informative.
   Anyone could make a claim on a registration that has no owner already.
   Anyone claiming to be the owner of a registration that already has an
      owner would have to submit their claim to <fill in the blank> (IESG?),
      with appeals going to <fill in the blank> (IAB?).

But I think it's better to just not have to have an owner, nor any
change control -- it's easier and cheaper that way, particularly if it
is true that collisions in this namespace are of little consequence.
