RAA subteam B participants:
As discussed on our most recent call, in order to move our work forward,
it was recommended that we launch discussion of some of the remaining
categories in the compiled list of RAA amendment topics. (I am using
the revised chart, posted earlier today and dated today, December 30.)
According to my notes, we have discussed topics 1-4 in our previous
call. On topic 5 -- compliance -- I have, by a message posted earlier
today, asked staff to provide their views on our next call on Tuesday,
Jan. 5. So this phase will begin with topic #6.
Here are some views put forward to get the discussion started,
recognizing that our role at this stage is primarily to organize and
prioritize the topics proposed, rather than to delve too deeply into the
details of the proposals made. (This does not preclude us from
deciding, if we can, that one or another topic is simply out of scope or
not appropriate for consideration with regard to RAA amendments.)
RE: Topics in category #6
This category includes many topics related to proxy/privacy registration
services. I suggest that another item belongs here as well: item 8.4,
re such services provided by resellers.
A number of these items can be grouped in subcategories as follows:
A. Escrow and data collection/preservation: items 6.1 and 6.7.
B. Obligations/disclosures of registrars regarding services they (or
resellers) operate or make available in connection with registration:
items 6.2, 6.4, 6.8(B), 8.4.
C. RELAY function of services: item 6.3.
D. REVEAL function of services: item 6.5, 6.6, 6.10.
All these subcategories should be considered as relatively high-priority
Topics in the following subcategories will take longer to deal with,
either because of the volume involved, or because of they represent more
fundamental changes in the approach to these services:
E. Accreditation of services generally: 6.8 and 6.8(A).
F. Discourage or ban such services: 6.9.
G. Allow such registrations only for non-commercial purposes: 6.11.
Please provide your reactions/comments on the list.
