As frustrating as it can be to deal with InterNIC, objectively it 
should be noted that:

(1) Your proposal would be costly to enforce because it would be 
necessary to determine whether the registrant submitted a correctly 
formed template so that culpability could be determined.

(2) It wasn't that long ago that two-week processing was standard for 
a lot of domain transactions.  They raised the bar on themselves by 
improving turnaround time through automatic processing.  I'm not sure 
that they should now have to pay a price for that.
