I actually ended up taking a moral stand on the grounds that they were trying
to hijack my domain by demanding extra proof that I am who I said I was beyond
controlling the email address and password I used to create the domain. (I'm
not sure what they planned on comparing my documentation _to_. They were also
talking about charging me something like three years of registration as an
'exit' fee. Luckily for the rest of my domains, the changes which mean 'no
denial' == 'transfer' came through before I had any other domains expire.)

This all started because their ecommerce system started rejecting my visa
card, and their support stopped responding for nearly a full year after
replying with "try it again, works fine here".
