I'm not referring to purchasing a new one, but altering or changing details on
an existing domain.

It should be difficult to transfer, without proper documentation. For me, it
was, as my registrar had ceased doing business. I was the registered owner, but
without the registrar being the middleman, it was extremely difficult and time
consuming to provide documentation to them indicating that I was the legitimate
owner. It's deliberately difficult to prevent such domain hijacking.

I don't know Paul's details, but I was commenting on the fact that I had to jump
through hoops to change my information -- So I was surprised that Paul's nemesis
was easy to do it (apparently) relatively easy.
