Hi everyone,

Would a statement like the following work, maybe somewhere in Rule 4?  

A Registrar may not permit changes to the registrant name field or registrant 
address field in WHOIS and may not permit transfer to another registrar after 
receipt of a request for verification is received by the Registrar from the 
Provider, except in limited situations involving a arbitration not conducted 
under the Policy or involving litigation as provided by Policy Paragraphs 8(a) 
or 8(b), or to change the registrant name field or registrant address field in 
WHOIS prior to commencement of administrative proceedings under the Policy [in 
accordance with whatever paragraph of the Rules Volker's proposed amendment 
related to accredited privacy/proxy services ends up in, or maybe Volker's rule 
could just go here].  Any other changes to WHOIS information during the 
pendency of the administrative proceeding under the Policy may be permitted or 
prohibited based on the Registrar's applicable policies and contracts.

That would be clear about the registrar's minimum requirements to meet UDRP, 
and be clear that anything else is up to policies imposed by the registrar 
instead of being an unwritten inference as it is now.  This would allow 
registrars to continue to have widely varied practices in accordance with their 
different business models, as we saw reflected in the initial surveys.
