I agree :
Getting rid of the obligation to maintain a whois server would be interesting to some registrars.

Some might want to keep it and should be able to do it.

But maintaining two sets of data should not be mandatory.

Best regards

Thanks Mikey,
Sorry I haven't been able to make the calls, one thing or another has
come up. I think the current draft and changes look good but I do have
one comment/concern.
It seems to assumes if all regitries are thick that registrars will
still be required to maintain a set of WHOIS data themselves. However,
if the registries are all thick and authoritative for WHOIS data then I
see no reason why a registrar should continue to be required to maintain
a duplicate set of the data, especially since it will also be escrowed
by the registry. I would think a number of registrars would find it
useful and cost effective to simply use a registry's authoritative data
instead of trying to maintain it themselves. And I can easily see an
effort by registrars to change the RAA and/or policies to reflect that.
So I don't think the PDP group should assume that both registrars and
registries will continue to maintain the data. It may be good to note
that possibility. Or alternatively, that may be a question they want to
consider. I don't think it would necessarily be out of scope since it is
tightly associated with whether all registries are thick or not, but
others may have a different opinion.

    hi all,

    here's the status report for this week. i *think* we're wringing out
    the last issues in the draft. so this would be a good time to take a
    look at the latest version. what seems to be working well is to run
    your ideas through the list so then we can work through them on the
    call. here's a link to the draft i pushed out after the last call.


    and here's the status report. i'm hoping we can get to a draft we
    can push out for a consensus call by the end of the meeting on
