Michael, your "long-winded" comment is exactly why I am recommending
a shorter formal definition for the purposes of our discussion. We
will inevitably resort to shorter forms in talking (and writing) and
I would prefer that they not be ad hoc.

May I suggest that instead of using the term "Original" which might cause
confusion between the individuals that originally registered the name, that
we use the term "Registered Name Holder prior to the expiration date"
While I appreciated that this may be a little long winded, the term
expiration date is also a term used in the various agreements.
From the RAA - "the expiration date of the registration" and "126.96.36.199 The
expiration date of the registration;" and "188.8.131.52. .......'the domain's
I think we are on more solid ground the closer we stay true to legal terms
already incorporated into the existing legal agreements.

I had volunteered to try to define the term we will use for the
entity who held a domain name just prior to exiration.
In mid-term, the RAA uses the term "Registered Name Holder" and in
conversation, we tend to use the term "Registrant" to denote the
entity that the Registrar believes has acquired the domain name and
the information which is put in the appropriate Whois database.
I suggest that the above definition be refined if necessary, and that
for the purposes of this PDP, we use the terms "Registered Name
Holder" and "Registrant" interchangeably.
I further suggest that we prefix either term with the word "Original"
to denote the Registrant at the time just prior to expiration. It has
been suggested that "original" might be referring to the entity that
registered the name in the first place (potentially several years
ago), but for the purposes of this discussion who held the name in
the very first place is not particularly relevant.
There have been some reports that (particularly for web-hosting
resellers), a domain name is never put in the name of the entity that
requested the name (despite there being no proxy-type agreement), and
we may need to come up with terms that address this situation as well.
