I would like to answer your question... but I can't grok it from these
two ADSP look-ups. Are you asking about what we do if someone other than
ourselves registers a cousin domain?
He seems to be. There are several approaches that could be taken:
1. A publication mechansism that allows you to say which cousin domains
you have registered.
2. A filter checking domains with Hamming distance measurements. Like a
magnifying glass casts a shadow round the focal point, I'd imagine that
domains close to those with high reputation could be assigned negative
reputation - unless they acquired reputation from (1) above.
3. It simply would not be advisable to use cousin domains. Though
registering them to prevent use might be a good option.
