The blockchain implements First Come First Served without the need for 
an organisation to manage the registry. 
Sure, and that works nicely when the commodity in question is fungible. Names generally aren't considered fungible.

So, it works between 
"non-cooperating entities": one will have the name, the other will 
have to admit defeat. 
For some (in practice useless in the context of the DNS) value of the variable "works."

Whether or not FCFS is "fair" is a matter of 

I'm sure domain name squatters (and lawyers who get paid to go after the squatters) will think that quite "fair."
