It certainly wasn't expected by me :-)

I personally believe that name collisions have to potential to cause
real issues, but that the way that ICANN chose to "mitigate" them (the
above) is entirely inadequate / basically a no-op.
The fact that this has been sitting here, unnoticed for ~a year
demonstrates that -- if "controlled interruption" was actually
working, this would have been noticed before...

I don't think the execution is relevant when it was obviously a bad
idea in the first place.
This is like putting rabid weasels in your pants, and later expressing
regret at having chosen those particular rabid weasels and that pair
of pants.
