In reviewing the WHOIS Study priority tally, there is an area that this group
is overlooking: IDN implications of the current WHOIS. This is not a new issue.
Recently, SSAC called attention to this in SSAC 27
(http://www.icann.org/committees/security/sac027.pdf), but IETF and others have
been working on it going back to at least 2004, if not earlier. This group
might want to discuss protocol advances such as CRISP and IRIS and how these
advances provide a way for internationalization of registration data.
Category #7 (WHOIS Accuracy) in its current form does not capture the issue.
Internationalization of registration data might be its own study category.
