Interested parties can drop me a note and I'll pass along their
contact details to the RFI issuing party, or wait until the RFI is
issued, and I'll make the announcement here.
If I know you're a registry operator, then I've already passed on your
Thanks in advance for everyone's patience with a note of only
potential VI import.
