And some of the forms contain language stating in very explicit terms
that it is *not* a contract. See for instance 


"It is the intention of both parties that this exchange of lettes will
not form the basis for any claim for any legal or equitable relief,
give rise to a binding contract or create reliance on the part of
either party. Nothing contained in this letter shall give rise to any
liability, monetary or otherwise, by either one of us to the other."

Publishing this under the heading "ccTLD Agreements" seems like a bit
of a stretch to me...
