Euro bureaucrats tie up .eu in red tape to stop Brexit Brits snatching back their web domains

Not exactly, but close. It's the sort of attitude that underlies it. The idea that *everything* can be improved with detailed legislation to ensure we all do it the way that the legislators think we should. Ideally such legislation should include trapdoors that'll permit more draconian versions without too much debate.

IMO many continental countries have a whitelist view, while in the UK it has been blacklist. One of the changes the EU has wrought is that, gradually, we've become accustomed to the whitelist view of things.
