We can talk about it on the call. The data was collected on the
premise that it was just coming to me, but I have no problem sharing
the data if no one objects.

Hi Ross,

would it be possible that you send us the aggregated list of the
responses. That would make it easier to
understand your CT calculations.

Betreff: [gnso-trans-wg] Draft Priorities List

All - here is the draft list of priorities based on our respective
submissions. On our call, we will need to discuss whether or not
this needs
any fine tuning and how we should deal with those items that we have
given a
relatively low consensus priority (scoring a CT of 10 and higher, 10
the median of the scores).

If you have any questions about the methodology, please let me know
prior to
the meeting as I would like to use our time on the call to focus on
substance of our report to the council and not the processes used.

Many thanks,



This prioritized list shows the mean response of each of the
participants of
the IRDX (InterRegistrar Domain Transfer) Policy prioritization
of the GNSO Council. This working group has been tasked with
policy development priorities to the GNSO Council in this subject
These results were calculated by soliciting the priorities of each
of the
participants and then calculating the median response, or "central
(CT). Responses were received from:

Barbara Steel
Tom Keller
Stacy King
Christian Curtis
Mike O'Connor

Prioritized list of policy development questions re: IRDX

1. j. Whether there could be a way for registrars to make Registrant
Address data available to one another.  Currently there is no way of
automating approval from the Registrant, as the Registrant Email
is not a required field in the registrar Whois.  This slows down and/ or
complicates the process for registrants, especially since the
can overrule the Admin Contact. (CT5.0)

2. o. Whether a process for urgent return/resolution of a domain name
be developed, as discussed within the SSAC hijacking report
(http://www.icann.org/announcements/hijacking-report-12jul05.pdf; see
> also http://www.icann.org/correspondence/cole-to-tonkin-14mar05.htm).

3. g. Whether there is need for other options for electronic
authentication (e.g.,
security token in FOA) due to security concerns on use of email
(potential for hacking or spoofing). (CT6.0)

4. e. Whether reporting requirements for registries and dispute
providers should
be developed, in order to make precedent and trend information
to the community and allow reference to past cases in dispute
submissions. (CT7.0)

5. q. Whether standards or best practices should be implemented
use of Registrar Lock status (e.g., when it may/may not, should/should
be applied). (CT8.0)

6. h. Whether provisions on time-limiting FOAs should be implemented
to avoid
fraudulent transfers out.  For example, if a Gaining Registrar sends
receives an FOA back from a transfer contact, but the name is locked,
registrar may hold the FOA pending adjustment to the domain name
status, during which time the registrant or other registration
may have changed.(CT9.0)

7. c. Whether additional provisions on undoing inappropriate transfers
needed, especially with regard to disputes between a Registrant and
Admin Contact.  The policy is clear that the Registrant can overrule
AC, but how this is implemented is currently at the discretion of the
registrar. (CT9.0)

8. d. Whether additional provisions should be included in the TDRP on
how to
handle disputes when multiple transfers have occurred. (CT10.0)

9. m. Whether special provisions are needed for change of registrant
simultaneous to transfer or within a period after transfer.  The
policy does
not currently deal with change of registrant, which often figures in
cases. (CT10.0)

10. n. Whether existing penalties for policy violations are sufficient
or if additional
provisions/penalties for specific violations should be added into the
policy. (CT10.0)

11. r. Whether registrants should be able to retrieve authInfo codes
from third
parties other than the registrar. (CT12.0)

12. s. Whether the policy should incorporate provisions for handling
â??partial bulk
transfersâ?? between registrars ­ that is, transfers involving a
> number of
names but not the entire group of names held by the losing registrar.

13. k. Whether additional provisions relating to transfer of
registrations involving
various types of Whois privacy services should be developed as part of
the policy. (CT13.0)

14. b. Whether review of registry-level dispute decisions is needed
complaints exist about inconsistency).(CT13.0)

15. i. Whether requirements should be in place for Registrars of
Record to send
an FOA, and/or receive the FOA back from Transfer Contact before
acking a transfer.(13.0)

16. a. Whether dispute options for registrants should be developed and
implemented as part of the policy (registrants currently depend on
registrars to initiate a dispute on their behalf).(14.0)

17. l. Whether additional requirements regarding Whois history
should be
developed, for change tracking of Whois data and use in resolving

18. p. Whether the process could be streamlined by a requirement that
use IANA IDs for registrars rather than proprietary IDs.(16.0)

19. f. Whether requirements or best practices should be put into place
registrars to make information on transfer dispute resolution options
available to registrants.(CT16.0)
