I agree that where it's important to be talking about the WHOIS
protocol we should say "WHOIS protocol". For example, when we want to
say that the WHOIS protocol is insufficient for the future needs of
directory services, we should say that just as I did here. Other than
that, I think the recommendations should use the more generic
vernacular primarily because if we want to improve discussion about
this topic in general we have to get people to stop saying WHOIS. We,
at least, need to do our part to improve the dialogue.

Thanks Jim. Just one question: I had thought that we talked about
Whois to mean directory services in general, but that we could still
"WHOIS protocol" to mean just that. Is that not the case? If not,
we use instead of WHOIS protocol?

One more important thing we need to include is to clearly change the
vernacular. On slide 3, Introduction, the phrase "in WHOIS services"
is highlighted in red. I assume that's because during the
presentation you are going to introduce the phrase "directory
service". Further, you'll explain that WHOIS is used to refer to
a protocol and a data model.
With that, we need to be absolutely clear throughout the presentation
to use the phrases "directory service" and "registration data",
expressly not using the phrase WHOIS.
There is one use of directory services and the rest say WHOIS.
