It all depends on the registry's moral and ethical stance, and whether
it feels more responsibility to the public trust, or responsibility to
"maximize shareholder value".  A large enough payment does wonders for
shareholder value, and an incredible number of companies don't seem to
feel any great need to benefit the public trust if not forced to do so.

And of course, even a not-large payment often suffices, especially if it
involves a suitcase and maximizing an underpaid employee's value... ;)
