RE: Topics in category #8
Category 8 items all deal with resellers.
I suggest that item 8.4 (reseller obligations with respect to
proxy/privacy services) should be reviewed under topic 6 (proxy/privacy
With that excision, it strikes me that most other items in this category
may be appropriate for "high priority" treatment. These include:
8.1: Registrar guarantees for reseller fulfillment of RAA obligations.
8.2 and 8.3: Disclosures by or about resellers.
8.5: Termination of reseller for breach of RAA obligations
However re 8.6: Due diligence on resellers: This may be a longer term
issue, given the number of resellers and the enhanced due diligence
being proposed for registrars.
