I think it would be helpfull if you explain what steps are involved in 
domain transfer process (to your registrar) and its authorization, i.e. 
something like
 1. MIT receives transfer request from reseller
 2. MIT sends email confirmation to whois contact (which contact - tech, 
    admin?)
 3. MIT sends email (or is it request through Verisign RRP?) to Verisign
 4. MIT waits for such and such action...
 etc.

I also would like to confirm who is responsible for denying transfer 
request if LOCK is present. Is Registry supposed to do it automaticly
or is it responsibility of losing registrar to actively deny the request
if they have put lock on domain?
