this might be little off topic, apologies if it's.

which registrars provide registrar-lock enabled by default to improve
security, if any?

i have been trying to educate mysefl and understand why registrars don't
enable this by default and only document I was able to find was
https://www.icann.org/resources/pages/policy-transfers-2014-07-02-en which
I am not even sure if it's the right one.

any pros/cons you can think of this being enabled by default other than
obvious additional steps being required for domain transfers, and this
adding burden for registrars, etc.

ps: yes , looking at craigslist.org's incident, i am wondering why don't we
have this by default
