There are other implications, but I think the primary issue with it is
transfers. I really don't want to ask for a PDP on whether or not
Registrars should be required to allow registration agreement
reassignments, changes of the RNH of record, etc. I think we should
leave that up to a registrar's particulare business model. 

It's the near simulataneous RNH of record change and change of registrar
issue that needs resolved. In fact, it was prohibited in the old policy
and dropped from the new one for some reason, although I have never been
able to find any explanation as to why.

I absolutely agree with your statement:

but it has absolutely nothing to do with "Enhancements to the current
transfer dispute policy". If we want to tackle this issue we should
point this out to the council as an important topic that has been
identified to be dealt with. I just do not think that any Transfer PDP
is the right vehicle for such an discussion because the whole issue is
larger than just transfers.

I totally disagree Tom. And you have it backwards. The concern is about
a registrar transfer occuring immediately following a change in the
Registered Name Holder (RNH) of record for the name. Also, 3.2.2 has
nothing to do with a change in the RNH of record. It has to do with the
RNH changing its own contact data. There is nothing in the RAA that
deals with, or that requires, registrars to facilitate a change of RNH
or allow assignment of its Registration Agreement from one RNH to
I strongly disagree with any attempt to delete this one. It has been a
constant point of contention and needs to get resolved.

please excuse my tardiness but reading the latest document I have to
bring up one more recommendation we should discuss. 

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 hijacking cases. (CT10.0)
It should have come to my mind before but technically there is no such
thing as a simultaneous change of registrant and registrar. The way the
protocol works is that the transfer has always to be executed first
before a change of registrant can be made. In fact the transfer itself
has nothing to do with  any registrant data it is purely a change in
sponsorship from one registrar to another. A change of registrant after
the completion of a transfer is in no way related to the transfer policy
but subject to the RRA requirement 3.22:
3.2.2 Within five (5) business days after receiving any updates from the
Registered Name Holder to the data elements listed in Subsections,, and for any Registered Name Registrar
sponsors, Registrar shall submit the updated data elements to, or shall
place those elements in the Registry Database operated by the Registry
As I agree that both issues can be related especially in the case of
hijacking changes I do not view this as a transfer issue and would
therefore suggest to swop it into the pool of deleted recommendations.
