hi all,

here’s a first-try at the revision:

3.4 The 60-day transfer lock will be required if an Account Holder updates 
their email address, thus effectively causing a Change of Registrant and 
simultaneously rendering impossible the exchange of the Change of Registrant 
Credential as described in section 3.2.   If the Account Holder wishes to opt 
out of the lock, they can validate the change of address through other 
verifiable means.

> Hi, All,
> Thank you to everyone who attended the call;  it was a very robust discussion.
> For those who were unable to attend, I have attached instructions on how to 
> listen to the recording.  
> At the start of the call, I presented a scenario whereby a Prior Registrant 
> would be unable to ACK/affirm a Change of Registrant request (COR) request 
> because their email account no longer exists. (Perhaps they left their 
> company, university, etc.)  Similarly, if someone were to move and suddenly 
> have a new address, telephone, email address, ISP provider, it would be 
> impossible to ACK a COR via email, postal mail, phone, etc.  While this is 
> narrow use case, ICANN staff and the IRT are trying to ensure that we are not 
> creating an unworkable scenario where a Prior Registrant cannot update his or 
> her email address.  
> Section 3.4 of the draft COR Policy would allow a registrant to log into 
> their account and update their information via their verified account.  This 
> gets around the non-existent email address issue, but some have expressed 
> concerns about the risk of hijacking since resellers, hosting providers, et. 
> al., may be an account holder.  
> ICANN staff is currently seeking solutions to the problem mentioned above.  
> Specifically, we are looking for alternative authentication methods besides 
> the exchange of pin. 
> A couple of suggestions mentioned on the call include:
>       • FOAs for change of registrant.  (The Prior Registrant would receive 
> an informative FOA at its email address (listed in Whois) and if it doesn’t 
> contact the registrar within a certain number of days, the email change would 
> go through.)
>       • Alternative authentication depending on the type of registrant 
> change, i.e., a different authentication method could be used if the name is 
> staying in the same account rather than a “push” between accounts
> Please feel free to elaborate on the above or provide new suggestions 
> entirely.  We discussed the difficulty with the resolution of this particular 
> problem and how this may need to back to the GNSO for more guidance if it 
> cannot be resolved within the IRT, particularly since the IRT is not a 
> representative body of the ICANN community.
> Please provide any suggestions to me by COB Thursday, 18 December.  Thank you 
> in advance for your feedback.  
> Kind regards,
> Caitlin
