I think what he means is that Gandi essentially says "if the domain owner do something illegal, I won't care, the domain owners are the only one to face the jurisdiction". In other words, they will not entertain any request from any third party. That third party must contact the domain owner directly if he has a complain.
I think so too, but if you read it carefully, that's not what Gandi says. Gandi says what they all say, including Godaddy: Gandi is not responsible to the customer for taking the blame if use of the domain harms someone. But Gandi is still free at its option to mess with the registration in order to prevent that harm, and this contract between Gandi and its customer definitely doesn't affect Gandi's responsibility to a third party for that harm.
Because this is standard one-sided CYA contract language, I don't think you can infer anything from it about Gandi's attitude toward requests like Myspace's.
