That doesn't really matter, since the 1000 total level limit is on changing names for the first 24 hours, not on losing your display name from inactivity.
(You were looking at "Urza", right?)

Im aware of the specifications. I was hoping for an edge over the name. Im also aware of the current releases too.

Edited the first post to include the following update :- 
Just a heads up; we won’t be releasing another batch of character names this week. This is primarily due to the fact we’re focusing our attention on mitigating the current service disruptions.

As always, we want to keep you updated, as we know quite of a lot of you have your eye on a new name!
For more information on future batches remember to check the homepage.

The third batch (letters I-M) is to be released starting 4pm BST tomorrow (August 28).  As before there is the restriction to accounts whose total level is 1000+ for the first 24 hours.

The name I've wanted has never been available and has never shown up on the high scores. What a pain.

One of the issues associated with usurping display names is that it could create confusion for their previous owners. For example, if Jagex releases the username "Bob" and someone claims it, the new holder of the display name might be mistaken for the original "Bob" by the latter's friends who think he has returned to the game. I'm kind of curious: has anything like this ever happened to anyone who has claimed an inactive display name?

that was the biggest issue for display name changes when the system was rolled out in the beginning.

They system really needs to be revamped to show a complete history of someones name.

Well original Bob would show up as a string of numbers in their friendlist.

When someone gets added to a fl it tracks that accounts unique id not the explicit name

True, but if a friend of "Bob" were to create a new account, they might still try to add their original name and not realize the change.

Oh yeah, and it seems the original display names of Andrew Gower ("Andrew") and Paul Gower ("Paul") have also been usurped. This seems like a bad idea to me as it could allow someone to impersonate Jagex staff.

Andrew and Paul don't display any "last known as" at the moment, so I think they're still on the Jmod accounts.

If a name is not on the hiscores, name change screen says it's not available, but adding to ignore says unknown player...what does that mean? Banned account? Something else?

Decent chance of release?

Remember to maintain a membership for a month twice a year for the following years. Seems to be enough to prevent you from getting your name taken from you, if their current criteria is anything to go by. Grats on getting Dark Dude, Mike.
