This is not correct, prior to the new policy many registrars were
already putting control over the regsitrar-lock directly into
the registrants' hands and under the new policy if the registrar
employs it they must provide access to the registrant.

It's just called a registrar-lock to differentiate it from
the registry-lock, basically to describe at what level the
lock is set.
