[ga] Domain name redemption: Supplemental paper / post-deletion transfers
ICANN has published a supplemental paper on the Redemption Grace
In short, registrar processes remain mostly unchanged, registries
should be allowed to take a "cost-recovery service charge". (But
you read this on icann.blog already. ;-)
What's more interesting is the section on "Enabling Registrants to
Choose the Renewing Registrar". Yes, folks, you read this
correctly: What this paper seems to be proposing is nothing less
than post-deletion (!!) domain transfers without any involvement of
the loosing registrar. I sense a new work item for the transfers
task force when it comes to the implementation of this.
Note, however, that this only makes sense when a hoarding policy is
introduced first: Using redemption for registrar transfers can only
work if registrant knows rather precisely at which point of time the
delete command will be issued.
Comments? Should we possibly propose such a policy? If so, I
suppose we should have something ready before Ghana.
