"Exactly. So the public isn't able to discover who registered dodgybusiness.com without expensive and cumbersome due process. "

You are assuming that dodgybusiness.com was so inept as to register with their correct details. You are also misunderstanding the point of GDPR. Dodgybusiness.com is a business and so must publish it's contact details and is not protected in that way by GDPR. But they probably used a registrat that doesn't care or check the details anyway.
