Subject: Why a new RRP now? It needs to be defined BEFORE a new Registry is proposed to use it.


I think that introducing a new RRP interface right now is a bad idea.  The Affilias proposal includes creating an IETF task force to document an XML-based RRP.  However, this IETF task force should complete its work BEFORE a Registry is approved by ICANN to come online using the new technologies.

The current RRP is tested.  Registrars have been certified on it.  It should be a simple matter of running a certification check against new Registries' RRPs for existing ICANN accredited Registrars to go live.

The first pass at new gTLDs should use existing interfaces.  Yes, new technologies should be used to implement the Generic RRP Requirements as currently defined in  But lets get a few new gTLDs running with multiple accredited Registrars before introducing an entirely new infrastructure.
