RE: [del-com] Second draft of deletes implementation report
"A registrar must, at a minimum, make the same effort to inform a registrant of any material changes to the deletion policy during the period of the domain name licence as it would to inform a registrant of other material changes to the domain name licence."
"Registrars may only RESTORE Registered Names in order to correct unintentional deletions caused by registrant, registrar, or registry mistake (or as required by operation of the UDRP or other applicable dispute resolution policy in order to implement a court, arbitral tribunal or Administrative Panel decision)..."
It may be a minor point but we should probably recognize the above to illustrate that this recommendation is in line with existing policy:
"In the event that a domain the subject of a UDRP dispute is deleted, a complainant in the UDRP dispute will have the option to restore the name, as provided for in current Redemption Grace Period policy, under the same commercial terms as the registrant. If the complainant restores the name, the name will be placed in Registrar HOLD and Registrar LOCK status, The WHOIS contact information for the registrant will be removed, and the WHOIS entry will indicate that the name is subject to dispute. If the complaint is terminated or the UDRP dispute finds against the complainant, the name will be deleted within 45 days."
