Actually I thought they were asking that work that had been promised on
further researching the problem and mitigation techniques be done as
opposed to just prohibiting things because the first thoughts turned out
to be inadequate.

As for the so-called toxic waste names (i really find that terminology
problematic) someone needs to find a solution otherwise the possibility
of adding more and more names to the so called waste pile of usurped
names over time becomes an increasing possibility.  If someone can just
start using a name and thus make it too hard to delegate we have a much
bigger problem.
