Within Specification 6, interoperability clause 1.2, there is the following 

"(...)in conformance with RFCs 5910, 5730, 5731, 5732, 5733 and 5734"

Conformance with RFC 5731 requires that registries supporting domain attributes 
do not allow host objects as specified in RFC 5732. We suggest the following 

"(...)in conformance with RFCs 5910, 5730, 5731, 5732(if not supporting domain 
attributes per RFC 5731), 5733 and 5734"

This will make clear that while RFC 5731 supports both host objects and domain 
attributes, leaving its choice to the registry, ICANN is not requiring all gTLD 
registries to only use host objects(defined in RFC 5732), but keeping this 
technical choice up to the registry, provided registry documents this choice 
to ICANN prior to deployment as specified in the last sentence of clause 1.2.
