I think it's a little different. If the tenant leaves all of a sudden and takes his inventory/business with him, the owner is at a huge disadvantage, since he can't take advantage of the increased traffic to his now empty space and is not collecting rent. In the domain business, the owner simply switches his domain to a nice PPC engine and collects the money.
Asking a local domainer who missed the boat on IDNs in his language if IDNs are valuable is like asking your wife whether your mistress is pretty.
