[gnso-irtpc] Data Gathering Subgroup Survey Results
Hello Everyone, Please find attached the results from the survey on charter questions B and C. The data gathering sub team met yesterday and below are some observations that we made. Would welcome input from the working group. If you could get any comments to me by Friday of this week we will publish a findings paper the following week. Thanks all for your support. Mtn. * Respondents seemed fairly balanced between large and small registrars. The number of registries seemed appropriate. We will attempt to subsegment the responses to further analyze the registrars but at a high level it seems balanced. * Charter Question B: The majority of respondents felt FOAs should be time limited, but a disproportionate share of comments felt the other way. * Most respondents felt the FOA time limit should be 30 days or less. * Almost half of the registrars responding already time limit FOAs on their own. * A very small percentage of respondents have experienced problems due to FOAs not being time limited. * An even small percentage had heard about problems caused by FOAs being not time limited. * When asked about the downside of time-limited FOAs, a significant concern was the complexity involved in adding this logic. However it was raised that the standardized change in control may address this. * Most (73%) respondents felt that time limited the FOA would involve minimal to some effort (as opposed to sizable effort) * Charter Question C: Most respondents (82%) had not experienced nor were aware of problems caused by the use of proprietary IDs versus IANA IDs. * Many comments in favor of using IANA IDs were around simplicity and transparency. * The responses on whether to require the use of only IANA IDs was pretty much split between yes, no, and no strong view either way. * Most respondents did not believe use of IANA IDs only would involve significant effort. * A majority (60%) felt there should not be a requirement to use IANA IDs combined with proprietary IDs however the subgroup mentioned the possibility of grandfathering existing proprietary IDs and moving forward with new IDs all being IANA. * Most respondents (80%) felt the effort would not be sizable but we may do some sub segmentation on this to clarify based on respondent type. * Implications of making a change to IANA IDs seemed heavily concerned with lack of support from ccTLDs. -- Bob Mountain Senior Vice President Business Development [cid:9F696FD4-E9C1-427D-B0C8-E6F83C4FFF89] E: mtn@xxxxxxxxxxxxx<mailto:bmountain@xxxxxxxxxxxxx> P: +1 781.839.2871 F: +1 781.839.2801 C: +1 508-878-0469 Visit us at NameMedia.com<http://www.namemedia.com/> CONFIDENTIALITY NOTICE: This e-mail and any documents attached to it may contain confidential or proprietary information or content.
