    Main issue is the "lessee may bail" one. Most do. The other stuff is relatively minor in my view.

    I'm leasing about 10 websites at the moment and my biggest concern is that they do the name damage and then move on.

    It is a rare person that will lease a domain in the first place so that would be hard.
