Hi Mark,

it's interesting concept. As we are quite liberal registry, we treat
all domains equal :) We have simple price list with the same price for
any domain and any registrar and this is also reflected in FRED. 

However we have noticed growing demand for more granular price list
based on registrar size, registrar country, etc. I guess that when will
decided to implement this we could take also this premium domain price
list into account.
