Actually, there are TLD registries that do have registration rules.
This is true of many ccTLDs and some of the sTLDs (sponsored TLDs).
But the vast majority of domain registrations are in TLDs that have
no registration rules of the type being discussed here.

could be read to mean some domain registration rules can be counted
upon for this purpose. Practically speaking, I don't think this is
true at all.
